This one was taken at the Notting Hill Carnival 2010. I like the accidentally great lighting of this guy.
The causes of tunnel vision: can be caused by any type of damage to the optic nerve, to the retina of the eye, or to areas in the brain responsible for the processing of visual input. Loss of peripheral vision may be a symptom of some of the conditions that cause a generalized loss of vision.
Peripheral vision problems mean that you don’t have a normal, wide-angle field of vision, even though your central vision may be fine. Moderate and severe cases of peripheral vision loss create the sensation of seeing through a narrow tube, a condition commonly referred to as “tunnel vision.” Symptoms of peripheral vision loss also can include difficulty seeing in dim light and decreased ability to navigate while you are walking.
A black forrest holiday must include always to have a chat with a black forrest girl. This one was taken in Munich.
The Black Forest (German: Schwarzwald, pronounced [ˈʃvaʁt͡svald]) is a wooded mountain range in Baden-Württemberg, southwestern Germany. It is bordered by the Rhine valley to the west and south. The highest peak is the Feldberg with an elevation of 1,493 metres (4,898 ft). The region is almost rectangular with a length of 160 km (99 mi) and breadth of up to 60 km (37 mi). The name Schwarzwald (German for “Black Forest”) derives from the Romans who referred to the thickly forested mountains there as Silva Nigra (Latin for “Black Forest”) because the dense growth of conifers in the forest blocked out most of the light inside the forest.
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
Tooting Common: one of the best things of Tooting
Tooting Broadway shops: Forget about them
Indian restaurant in tooting: Plenty and the best in London (espeically the South Indian ones)
History of Tooting: Tooting has been settled since pre-Saxon times. The Romans built a road, which was later named Stane Street by the English, from London (Londinium) to Chichester (Noviomagus Regnorum), and which passed through Tooting. Tooting High Street is built on this road. As with many of South London’s suburbs, Tooting developed during the late Victorian period. Some development occurred in the Edwardian era but another large spurt in growth happened during the 1920s and ’30s.
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 was taken in 2005 when I was working in the area.
The photo was taken in Munich.
There are not so many Bavarian beer houses in London – although German beer is available in most of the pubs. Checking a London restaurant guide you might find maybe 3-4 proper German restaurants in London (the rest is rubbish bratwurst fake, mind you there’s a new one in Soho where I had Bratwurst Nachos the other day).
This picture was taken at the Great British Beer Festival held at Earls Court in London. It’s a shame there are no Oktoberfest costumes (dirndl dress) to see – this would have make me feel 100% like being in a Bavarian beer garden.
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 predicting its next move.
