This next set of pictures show some of the things and scenes that presented themselves (or were pushed) before my lens is the second half of my summer holiday after my wife and I returned to England from France.
(Not the first time the bowl has appeared in this blog – it is my favourite)
The spire of St Paul's Church, Hounslow West, where I go to sign some papers relating to an important building project.
A beautiful sunny day and my wife and I go for a walk by the Thames at Twickenham. Looking downstream you can see Eel Pie Island on the other side and the pedestrian bridge that the island's residents maintain.
Frozen blackberries taken from the freezer and thawing out before being finding their way into a delicious crumble that my wife made.
Actually it was quite a small spider that appeared by our front door, but I have grunged up the image to accord with all the negative publicity that arachnids generally receive. Shameful really.
Boring photograph of a boring building going up opposite Twickenham Station—squeezed through various processes in a doomed attempt to make it look interesting.
A mysterious angel emerges from the structure of a building at the corner of
Moorgate and King's Arms Yard in the City of London.
The Severn Estuary at Newnham.
Detail of a plant in the herb beds at St Olave Hart Street that commemorate
William Turner, 'father of English botany' (c.1508–1568).
