One of those moments that could have passed unnoticed, walking down the path I happen to turn to my left and I saw a brief glance of Winter in that old oak tree that had shed its leaves, the squirrel and the church spire in the distance.

As part of an ongoing project of ‘mapping the river Thames’ one can find common places, such as this conveyor belt that delivers sand into the hull of ships and barges. The Thames is still a working river.

The MV Royal Iris was a twin screw, diesel-electric, former Mersey Ferry. The vessel was built by William Denny & Brothers and launched in December 1950.
It is now in its final resting place, possibly its last.
I am certain there are many stories to be told by and about this rusting old ferry.

I have been watching an interesting character here in central London, Piccadilly, for weeks but never had a chance to talk to him.
I asked him if I could take his picture.
He was quite agreeable.
One of the many interesting people in London.

I would like to share with all those who would like to hear the opinions of a very honest man: José Mujica, the president of Uruguay.
What is clear is the strength of his convictions, his humility and the wisdom of his age.
I have tried to embed a video but it does not seem to work (?!).

The interview is in English with a rather good Spanish translation.

A couple of days ago I saw this photo of mine on a friend’s wall and it brought me back to the memory of why I took this picture. It was the mystery of the angel’s demeanour : he seemed to be in a different reality, so involved was he in his own ritual.
It was during a yearly festival in La Paz that I chanced upon him with thousands of other dancers.
