Let the Games Begin

London Olympics 2012
London is a buzz 
celebrating the worlds greatest athletes!
The spirit shown in the first photo below is just an example 
of the bold, wonderful team spirit being demonstrated 
by people from across the globe 
that are in London to cheer on their home team.
This posting will continue to grow with the posting
of new photos over the course of the Olympic games.

Olympic Spirit at the Hyde Park venue.....
No doubt who she's cheering for during these Olympic games!!
Mounted Police - nice way to get around town these days :)

London: Old & New

Tower Bridge & City Hall

While visiting the Tower of London this spring we toured the White Tower 
and I found this great vantage point looking across the Thames
with a view of both Tower Bridge and City Hall.
I loved the windows in White Tower framing the contrasting
views of London with the historic Tower Bridge and the modern City Hall building.
The cloudy day provided added interest for me.

Award Winning Images...

Day in the Life of Marylebone

The two images above were selected as winners in the 
Day in the Life of Marylebone 2012 
photo competition.
The competition is focused around St. George's Day
and the photographs have to be taken in Marylebone over St. George's Day weekend.   
There were over 250 entries and I was fortunate enough to have 
two of the three images I submitted chosen as winners!
For more information on Art in Marylebone and to see all the winners 
check out the Art in Marylebone website.
An exhibit of the winning images took place in June and
a Day in the Life of Marylebone 2012 book 
was published including the two images above.

Seeing Purple

British Lavender

It's been a while since my last post so wanted to try an get back 
on track with my postings.  This image is from a recent trip 
to Mayfield Lavender.  What a beautiful place!  
The lavender is currently in full bloom and, as you can see, there are acres of lovely lavender.  
If you have the chance I highly recommend a visit.
