A Very Special Pillarbox

Finally managed to get to Katherine Grainger's gold pillarbox in Aberdeen - and actually posted a letter in it too! :-)

1960's Style!

Yesterday,(5th Sept), I had a 1960's-inspired shoot with Jodie. As always, we had a great time - and I think I'm quite pleased with the results! :-)

Northampton

It was lovely to be going back to Northampton again - and also lovely to see all of Tim's family again. Here we all are, out for Sunday lunch!
We visited All Saints Church in the town centre, where I took this picture, looking up through a chandelier in to the dome.

I also lit a candle for Craig.

Francis Crick was a molecular biologist, biophysicist, and neuroscientist from Northampton, and most noted for being a co-discoverer of the double-helix structure of the DNA molecule in 1953. This beautiful sculpture commemorates this.

Close-up. I really love this!

The old disused lift-testing tower, affectionately knows as the Northampton Lighthouse. It's very, very tall and one of my favourite buildings there. It's now listed, so can't be demolished! Good. :-)

Walking in the July sunshine.

It seems to have rained for almost the whole summer here in the UK and Northampton's River Nene was very swollen.

Looking out from the Guildhall.

It was a great weekend! :-)

Travels

Time seems to pass very quickly in Blogland. I can't believe it's been so long since my past post. Oooops!

So back in July, Tim invited me to go with him to Northampton to visit his family - and also have one day in London.

First stop in London just has to be the British Museum.

I could sit and look at this roof - and also people-watch - all day!

These tiny figures in the Egyptian department, amaze me every time I see them.

He always makes me sad.

We went to Covent Garden, but unfortunately on a day when it was clothes being sold, rather than interesting knick-knacks etc.

After a quick trip to Leicester Square and Picadilly Circus, we headed off to Buckingham Palace and took the obilgatory tourist pics .....

...... before going to the Queen's Gallery to see the 'Leonardo - Anatomist' exhibition.

It was quite breathtaking to be looking at his actual drawings and texts. Not copies - but the real thing! Amazing!

From outside Buckingham Palace, we could see the London Eye and the newly-completed Shard.

From there, we made our way to Greenwich to see the beautiful Cutty Sark.

Me, standing directly underneath the keel!

Next it was off to Trafalgar Square .....

.... where Tim took my picture beside the Olympic Countdown Clock!

We also walked the entire length of Oxford Street, then down the side of Hyde Park, before it was time to catch the train back to Northampton. More of which later!

I absolutely LOVE visiting London! :-)
