The Thames with the highest tide I have EVER seen…

On my way from the Tate Modern (yes I go to galleries now) to Chancery Lane for a meeting (and I have meetings too), dressed far too lightly for the very windy conditions.

Remember the Alamo

I was lucky enough to visit the Alamo in September, and I’ve finally got around to digging out a couple of photos. The trip was made even more memorable by reading Stephen Harrigan’s book ‘The Gates of the Alamo’ while I was there. Even if you’ve never had any interest in the Alamo, it’s a book worth reading. The only problem is, that every time you have to put the book down, you can’t help worrying about what’s happening to the characters in your absence!

Prague Castle

I recently spent a few days in Prague. The streets were really crowded with tourists, but looking out over the river, you could be the only person there. This is a view of Prague Castle from the Stare Mesto (Old Town) side of the Vltava River. The castle is the low-lying building on the hill, but the spires belong to St Vitus’ cathedral.
