Here i am on my way to work - see, we have had some sunshine lately
But on the whole its been pretty cold - bright, sharp sunshine with knife-edge shadows. The sort of weather I love on a good day, but weather that somehow requires energy.
This is my road, mid-late Victorian terrace houses
like most of the streets around my part of south london.
Our front door isn't half so lovely as this one and I have no idea who lives here at No. 135.
or here at No. 89, but I like the curly bits.
These houses - below - are just at the end of our road. They are much bigger (basements and attic rooms) and also older, I think.
I think these buildings below might also be older than our Victorian terraces but I have no evidence to support that assertion, nor any idea where it comes from. Its just an uninformed instinct on my part.
Anyway, I like them. The ground-floor level is a row of shops including an optician called "Ray Small Optometrist", which always makes me smile. I wonder if he is?
I pass all of these buildings frequently, on my journey to work - and i'm thinking of posting pictures of other aspects of my route before long in a "look - this is my neighbourhood" sort of way.
More often, recently, the buildings have been shrouded in fog, which sometimes lasts pretty much all day. Less demanding weather and better for concentrating just one or two footsteps ahead.
