London in Pictures

By now you have probably worked out a couple of things about me, firstly I love the city I live in and am proud to call London home and secondly I love to take photos. As you can probably imaging I have taken thousands of pictures of London over the years, I know I have numerous ones that are taken in the same or similar spots. I thought in this post I would share with you just a handful of my London photos, I have tried to include ones that are slightly different rather than your typical London postcard images, these include ones of taken from unusual positions, plus some take slightly closer to home.

Beautiful Pink Tulips

I love flowers and whilst I hardly ever buy them when I do it is a real treat. I was buying flowers for my mum for Mothers Day in Tesco on Sunday and I couldn't resist buying these tulips for myself. Along with orchids tulips are my favourite flowers. These have really opened up since I bought them and the pink and white flower is now obvious, plus as you can see from the picture below they are on a table below a painting of more tulips. I think the picture and the flowers really compliment each other so they look lovely where they are.

What I wore to the theatre

I remember as a child and teenager the theatre was always a treat and a time to dress up in our best clothes. These days that has changed, I love going to the theatre but it has become something of a norm rather than a treat, I guess that is one of the great things about living in London there is so much choice and it is usually possible to find something on offer! There is however still something special about seeing a live performance, though it no longer seems necessary to dress for the theatre, I am sure some people will disagree but for most including me this is not the case.

Last night I went to the theatre to see The Weir. The play is set in a small town Irish pub and features just five people, four local men and a lady who has moved down from Dublin. I'm still not sure how much I enjoyed it, whilst billed as a comedy there were some funny parts but in general it was quite dark, I often felt uncomfortable as if I was listening in on other people's conversations, but I guess that was the point of the play.
