London Life – a peak at the everyday side of one of the most amazing cities in the world.
Would someone please give me some blinders! Everywhere I look there’s something beautiful, quaint, charming or delicious!
Greetings from London…
It’s sometimes funny, the path that life takes you on. Scott and I never dreamed ten years ago that traveling to London would one day become a fairly normal part of our lives, but when our daughter and her husband moved to the UK six years ago, all that changed. We can’t stay away from this little family for long, so we find ourselves visiting this amazing city of over 8 million several times each year.
I must say though, despite the fact that we’ve visited London many times since they first arrived, it never grows old and definitely hasn’t become boring for us. In fact, this time we’ve been here only two days and already Scott’s taken a boatload of pictures. Our waking hours have been busy, busy, busy with this little herd of four kiddies.
I thought it might be fun to share a bit of what we’ve been up to and let you see everyday London Life, from a photographers point of few. Scott loves to capture life beyond the typical touristy things that you see so often in the media.
His pictures will help you see that the statement from the opening of this post is so true: it really does seem that everywhere we look in this vast city, there’s something beautiful, quaint, charming or delicious. That’s why I’m asking, “anyone out there have some blinders”? Maybe a pair for Scott (and his camera) too – I had a dickens of a time trying to pick out a reasonable number of pictures for this post!
So that’s a little glimpse of London through our eyes. We’re constantly amazed at the natural, God-created beauty that is so evident in this city and throughout in the United Kingdom and appreciate the charm of British history, architecture, culture, people and lifestyle.
We’ll be back on Tuesday to share an iconic British treat, Sticky Toffee Pudding. You will love this incredibly delicious taste of England. It’s a favorite dessert here at The Café will be perfect for your holiday recipe arsenal! Cheers!
