Beddington Park

I took these pictures in Beddington Park on a cold, miserable and grey morning. It used to be a rather scruffy park but now it’s really quite pretty.

I accidentally took the pictures with a filter on the iPhone camera app and they came out horrible, so I deleted them. I then discovered that the iPhone allows you to undo changes and so the damage done by the filter could be reversed after un-deleting. There was still a lot of work necessary in Photoshop to enhance the colours on such a sunless day. I may have gone a bit to far with the colour enhancements – artist’s prerogative!

Out for a stroll

Until the ‘social distancing’ becomes a ‘curfew’ it’s still possible to enjoy the parks and countryside. This morning, a walk in the park and a browse past the art gallery turned up a couple of nice images.

A medium-dry sherry, please

I suggested a walk in the woods followed by a medium-dry sherry in a pub with an open, log fire. (It must be 30 years since we last ordered a sherry in a pub!). It wasn’t to be, but we did make the park.

Autumn in London parks

What a gloriously sunny and warm day it was in London, yesterday! The tourists were walking the parks and many were sunning themselves on the numerous benches. As for the pigeons, they just bathed in the warmth, on the grass.

Construction of the annual Hyde Park Winter Wonderland attraction was well underway.

And after ambling through St James’s Park, Green Park, Hyde Park and a bit of Kensington Gardens, I think I deserved that bus ride to the station.
