The Past



The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

PhotoHunt - Lazy


This is a lazy sunny Sunday afternoon in St. James Park, London

The spring in the South of England this year was very wet and cold and this was the first weekend of the summer with decent weather. Thousands of people came out to the parks and gardens to enjoy the weather and just to laze around in the sun.




This oasis of calm is only a few feet away from Buckingham Palace and all the heavy traffic of the capital. Just the place for a lazy afternoon.

I used to work right by St James's Park. It was a wonderful place to lie down for an hour on a sunny day. Sadly my new office is not close to a park which is a pity. Have a great weekend
