Taken in autumn 2011 in London Tooting near the off-licence where I used to buy beers.
An impact of age is inertia. The problem is that the inertia moment occurs more often. The picure was taken at a flew market in London.
London life pensions are low, life can be tough in London. Rents are high and the general as well as the work situation is highly competitive. The flute player did not have a pension plan I take it. He should have used a pension calculator. Related articles Are you confident about your State Pension? (irishfinancialadviser.wordpress.com)
London marathon runners dress up in fancy dresses. This photo shows Bob, the smurf. This is the London marathon map.
London Traffic is a nightmare. I wish more people would cycle – the problem is London is rather huge. Better sleep over it.
Spring makes its own tender statement here in London. A blooming magnolia.
I lived for some time in Tooting and had a good time there. This picture shows my house mate at that time. This is to say about Tooting London: Where is Tooting in London: it’s in the South-West on the Northern Line one stop after Balham (Tooting Bec and the Tooting Broadway) Postcode for Tooting: SW 16 [...]
This picture was taken at Kensal Green Cemetery London. The girl without hands or the handless maiden or the woman without hands or the maiden without hands is a German fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm. A poor miller was offered wealth by the devil if the miller gave him what stood behind the [...]
Spring in London is a great time – this photo is from the hidden London series and was taken in Streatham South-London.
There are so many unexpected backyards in London, I always to come across some back yard chickens there. I love these places of neglectance.
Part of the borough of Wandsworth Tooting Broadway is full diversity and people you can take pictures ever and ever again. Am missing it! There are not fancy shops or pubs there, its more the real London – without being to much of East London.
Amongst the interesting places in London the London Bridge is good to watch commuters. Especially bankers – every morning there’s an army of suspicous people walking from London Bidge Station towards the city. A true spectacle – a sad rat race. It’s also a good starting point for places to visit near London. This photo [...]
London is full of love
Fun fair at Clapham Common, London. I am British myself but don’t know much about English rules or English behaviour.
Tim Etchells’ installation ‘We Wanted to be the Sky’ at London’s 2011 Southbank festival.
This is not a disused London underground stations but it’s close. It’s a place underneath the Waterloo station called Oldvictunnels. Go and check it out!
This is the Wimbledon Windmill where you find the Wimbledon windmill museum. And obviously its in a strong HDR format.
It’s not a late night restaurant in London but it does the job. I guess late night food does not have to be posh. There’s a time for proper restaurants in London… Taken at the graffiti tunnel near Waterloo.
If you’re looking for places to live in London Elephant & Castle should not be on your list. Or if you’re local you’d only say the elephant. Or you like the wired things then go to the elephant & castle pub. Anyway it seems like a “failed utopia” – council houses just never work for nobody. [...]
London in Autumn is a wonderful place.
Another street performer in London Southbank. This time a mysterious girl performing the usual statue thing.
Busking London has a long traditon and is rather charming. And these guys are really good! Often seen at London tube stations this one was taken at Notting Hill.
The discovery of abandoned buildings and urban decay is half the fun urban exploration London. I will add some more urban exploration photos soon.
A day in the Imperial War Museum London in Southwark. By the way the most boring day in history was April 11, 1954.
Showing the fountain in front of the Southbank Centre in London, UK. The fountain is called “Appearing Rooms” and is a work of Jeppe Hein. The idea is that jets of water shoot into the air, creating ‘rooms’ that disappear as quickly as they emerge, inviting visitors of all ages to try their luck at [...]
There are some grim and rough places around London. Of course East London but also close to the centre, Elephant & Castle where the infamous Haygate Estate is located, is a candidate and this is where the photo was taken. Only the toughest London photographers go there… You might wanna check out as well: Colliers [...]
A somewhat diabolic looking guy at the World Naked Bike Ride London 2011 (WNBR)
The image shows Arianna V. in Brockwell Park, London. The sky is underexposed and Arianna is lit by a flash.
A young contender at the World Naked Bike Ride London 2011 (WNBR). Taken at Hyde Park.
Another picture of the World Naked Bike Ride 2011. Two men felt so well, free and alive (or other undisclosed reasons) being naked that they started dancing and shaking a ‘leg’

Metal park bench in Battersea Park, London.
Seems monarchism does not die out – the royal wedding was the best example. On the pic you see a somewhat mad monarchist and advocate of the principles of British monarchy. The British system is a constitutional monarchy (or limited monarchy) where Elizabeth II acts as head of state within the parameters of a constitution (they don’t have [...]
After the royal wedding the queen went straight to the pub. For de-stressing purposes – god save her.
This girl was running a marathon dressed as a rhino. She must have done some serious training since this costume looks really heavy. Remember how long is a marathon run: 42.195 kilometres (26 miles) I found her at the London Marathon 2011.
Wondering what games to play in the garden? Try to find and take pictures of evil garden gnomes in your back garden – this creepy angry one was hiding in the very back. Ok, it’s not a garden gnome since:

I think he is a pretty cool guy, eh? Picture taken at an East London music festival.
A new picture from the Magnificent Seven series – the seven large cemeteries in London. This time Brompton Cemetery near Stamford Bridge (the football stadium of Chelsea FC) in South West London. The picture shows old coffins in the catacombs which were originally conceived as a cheaper alternative burial to having a plot in the grounds of the cemetery. Compared to the [...]
There are lots of famous bands from London but of course a myriad of not famous bands with really good musicians as well. This band photo was taken at Southbank Centre. Btw, the title is misleading, this is not the The Clash.
Another picture from the Magnificent Seven – the seven large cemeteries in London. Today the Nunhead Cemetery in East London Borough of Southwark. They say it’s the least famous and celebrated of them. They were all established in the 19th century to alleviate overcrowding in existing parish burial grounds and are now pretty much left to neglected management. Which [...]
I am not promoting self cannibalism – this is a night out.
Shot at one of the many London running events (half marathon, marathon or whatsoever) + people like to dress up in running costumes.

A guy standing in front of the Trellick Tower in London Kensington looking like Alex: the movie’s anti-hero from Stanley Kubrick‘s Clockwork Orange. The title is a metaphor for “…an organic entity, full of juice and sweetness and agreeable odour, being turned into an automaton. It’s about exploring the relationship between ethics/morality and free will. A lack of free [...]
When you’re young London is fantastic, no better place. Photo was taken at London Bridge.
