Sunset over London from the south east

Not much done to it as the colours were so intense naturally.

I took a friend to visit Greenwich and it is strange how one views a place anew through other people’s eyes and I rediscovered Greenwich once again.

The old sailor’s hospital  now Greenwich University.

A Record of a motorcycle trip

We have just returned from a memorable motorcycle ride to Spain and Portugal.

Here some highlights of the trip: it is hard to separate the experience from witnessing it as an observer, but next year the experience will be recording the trip.

In the mean time….

A fine busy port with an attractive approach. The large buildings I believe are hotels. We did not stay long enough: one busy town is the same as the next busy town.

We stopped at Medina de Rio Seco. We rode all day along the fertile plains of Castilla y Leon: wheat and other cereals as far as the eye could see, surrounded by distant bluish  peaks.

A village as many others

Here’s an example of a village like hundreds on the plains of Castilla y Leon, with the morning sun as a backdrop.
