Reach For The Sky

I took these photos with my iPhone. I also took my Fuji, but the photos are still on the SD card.

When I first read about cameras with built-in wifi that enables you to wirelessly transfer the images to computer, I thought it was a gimmick. But the truth is that in a world of convenience, everything that is even a little bit less convenient becomes a chore.

So, back to the tale of a week in London.

We spent a week there and we were blessed with good weather so we spent a day at Kew Gardens. The magnolias were in bloom and they were staggeringly beautiful.

We also visited the Wildfowl and Wetland Centre at Barnes, just four miles from the centre of London - with hundreds of wildfowl - ducks, geese, waders...

And we went to the Wildlife Photography Exhibition and to an exhibition on Greek sculpture. And to some other things like sitting out at the South Bank Centre and watching the world go by.

It was a full week and just what we need…
