Pimlico and Victoria

It’s been a lovely day for wandering around London. I’m fond of the the Victoria / Pimlico area and I had intended to browse around Tate Britain. However, desperate for sustenance, the queue in the Tate cafe was just too long, and I walked straight out to continue my walk in the sunshine! These are my non-touristy pictures of the walk.

Great Pubs of London by George Dailey

greatpubsI’ve just bought the book Great Pubs of London, by George Dailey. It has descriptions  and glorious photographs of 22 of London’s oldest pubs. I’ve been to a couple of them over the years but my goal is to visit all of them during 2017 for a pint, a pie and a picture!

But first I will need my new low-light, pocket camera (Sony Cyber-shot RX100 under consideration) so I can take photos in the dark bars of these old pubs.

Along the South Bank to Canary Wharf

It was a dull morning when I set off from Waterloo station along the South Bank, heading for Canary Wharf on the other side of the Thames. Eventually the weather improved and became sunny / cloudy and this time I managed to locate the pier where the short ferry embarks and crosses the Thames to Canary Wharf – you have to walk through the Hilton Hotel reception! Finally a bit more walking along the North Bank until my feet gave up at Wapping Station.

Disappointed with the pictures, I decided that I would artify the best ones. (artify – to apply artistic techniques – the Urban Dictionary)
