Pictures from an English Vineyard

Depsite being full of cold (still), I managed to get out for a short wander around Denbies Wine Estate with my camera.

The autumn colours have yet to show at the vineyard but there was a little colour in the trees.

Open House London – Bond Street

As part of  Open House London 2012 we had a tour of Crossrail’s new Bond Street station.  After a short presentation we were given a bird’s-eye view of the constructions sites of the two ticket halls in Davies Street and Hanover Square.

With the popularity of such a visit there was a little bit of wait.  So I explored the area a little bit.    On the corner of Davies Street and South Molton Street is the stunning Bosideng store.

In Davies Street is the nineteenth century terracotta building, commissioned by John Bolding and Son which is now Grays Antique Dealers.

As the bikes and riders cross the Town Bridge, it becomes a race to the finish from the bottom of the cobbled High Street. From the pack emerges a leader and the winner of the final stage, Mark Cavendish.

Fun fair

Funfair

Lights, screaming, movement, noise.  The fun fair is back in town!

Ripples

Ripples on the water. Ripples on the pond.

Focus

Sat outside last Saturday morning enjoying a coffee and playing with my camera while it was sat on the table. 

Focusing

I love this accidental capture, which has the Costa coffee cup in focus and opposite, the best man waiting for the arrival of a wedding party out of focus. 

Wonder where my focus was?
