LONDON – Here are some photos of what’s caught my eye in London lately.
Last night I walked with a friend to St. Katherine’s Docks where the Danish hospitality house had been set up a for the Olympics. To be honest, it didn’t seem like much of a party so we left as soon as we arrived, but not before I took this shot.
I thought this was funny. It’s down the road from me on the way to church. Particularly enjoyed the spelling error…yoor or you’re!
I love the colours in this piece of timber by St. Katherine’s Dock.
In Victoria Park village, two guys are selling these shirts and hoodies. If you look at the mannequin against the wall, the shirt says ‘1220 LYMP OICS’. The guys said that this is there way of protesting the draconian restrictions on using the Olympic logo.
Ahh…me and my public clocks. This one is in Victoria Park Village.
CANARY WHARF – It didn’t take long for the moneyed people to come to town. With the Olympics here, such events attract people from the upper echelons of society. As a result, we’ve had a few yachts sail in. They’re mostly docked in Canary Wharf, a short walk away. So I strolled over there and took a look for myself to see how the other half lives.
I can report, that they live very well.
Here is what Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, uses for his coast to coast travels.
It’s called the Octopus and comes with rooftop jacuzzis, blacked out windows and swimming pools.
Apparently, the Germans don’t like British hotels, so they are staying on their very own cruise ship.
And the Danish Royals also brought a barge called the Dannebrog.
Daily mooring rates cost between $3000 to $9000 during the Olympics. Small change for these guys.
Yes, the yacht life is the good life…
