L had to be for London.

It’s a year since I’ve been there so I enjoyed looking through archives to choose a few photos to share.

I commuted to work in this wonderful city for more decades than I want to admit. Initially working in Knightsbridge, wandering in Hyde Park or Harrods during lunch breaks. Later, working on the South Bank, walking passed the Globe Theatre each day, enjoying views across the river to St Paul’s Cathedral. I spent many years in the actual City of London, passing Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the Monument, and more recently, the Shard. So many favourite places in the centre of the city and further afield in Greenwich.

As it’s is Thursday, I’ve included a few doors and gates for Norm’s Thursday Doors  challenge.
