I hate public transport it’s full of the great unwashed.

I’d better start that again.

It was a beautiful day when I went to get my stitches out so instead of catching the bus from Wimbledon to Tooting where the hospital is I decided to walk and take some photo’s along the way.

I’ve done a little more post processing than I normally do but I’ve tried to give them all something of a vintage or retro feel and think it’s been quite successful. I know that apps like instagram have made this look über trendy at the moment and for once I’m happy being on trend because it’s a look that works for me.

I loved this rather tatty beetle especially with the faux coca cola air cooled sticker in the rear window.

There must have been something in the air because I kept finding retro stuff to shoot.

as usual I stopped and smelled the roses

can you spot the mini bomber squadron?

A little slice of the country in the middle of the city

of course it’s not all green and pleasant.

Not a huge amount else to say but I hope you enjoyed them as much as I have.

Thank for all the message about my thumb I’m much more comfortable now that the stitches out and might stop whinging and whining at some point in the near future.

    Like the retro look – my favourite is the shot of the beetle. Love roses no. 1 & 2, and love the beautiful pink flower! 🙂

    Glad you are on the mend. What a great idea to combine an unpleasant errand with a photo walk! We all benefit.

    Loved to walk along with you. Many thanks for the ride.
    Fully recovered now? Hope so!

    • certainly much better but not yet 100%, got stuck in traffic yesterday and was in agony by the time I got home not helped by my toddler then kicking my hand as I tried to wrestle him out of his car seat.

  7. The “great unwashed” can also provide some great pictures though.

  8. […] gosh, blush lurvee alarm etc. et al, I am honoured and flattered to have had one of my posts recommended by the talented Matthew Durr whose blog I have followed for a while now, he posts […]

    I love your multi-faceted look at London – from the bizarre to the beautiful. I especially like the one of the shoes on a wire.

    • it’s such a cliche’d shot from all those cheap movies about gangs in LA from the 90’s and here I was wandering the affluent streets of South West London only to find a pair of Converse All Stars dangling from a telephone line.
