Week 18: London & dog wash

Filed under: — Administrator @ 15:26

The week started with a brief trip to London, from Sunday lunchtime to Monday afternoon. A full gallery is elsewhere, but here I show the three images that are my personal favourites.

Main
Millenium Bridge is probably one of the 10 most photographed spots in London. I have taken my share of the classic view of the bridge with St Paul’s across the river. This time, I wanted to try a different angle, and I am pretty pleased with the result:

The alternates
:

Alternate 1
The second London image I highlight here is one I took during an early morning walk near my hotel. This property is in a good location, but is definitely a fixer-upper:
4282151

Alternate 2
During the same morning walk, I was attracted to the shadows cast by the rising sun:

The rest of the images are again from my life in Alicante.

Alternate 3
I enjoy walking my dog on the beach, partly because of sights like this:

Alternate 4
One expects to find a car wash in a petrol station, but I have never before seen a dog wash, like in this Repsol station:

Alternate 5
The dog did not seem to mind the bath:

Alternate 6
But one had to be on alert in case the dog decided to shake off:

Alternate 7
Meanwhile, Thursday, besides being Labour Day, was also my dog’s 7th birthday. Her “cake” consists of a slice of my wife’s excellent quiche decorated with a kabanos, a type of Polish sausage:

Alternate 8
On Saturday, we went to visit some English friends who have a holiday apartment in Moraira, about 1/2 hour north of Alicante. Their daughter and ours went to school together when we lived in Switzerland, and the two girls were their delightful usual selves:

Alternate 9
Finally, a picture of the Moraira coastline, very rugged and beautiful:

  1. Love the dog picture. My Labrador would never have let the cake survive long enough for a photo.

  2. Photography wise I like the first one best. The others give me a very nice glance of your week. Thanks.
