rooftops and blue sky

This weekend is going to be SUNNY and HOT in London. Finally, we get some summer in October. And the view from my window, normally very dull and boring, is suddenly so beautiful with a clear blue sky.

Adele and St. Paul's

Went to see Adele play at the Hammersmith Apollo a few nights ago. She opened the show with her hit "Hometown Glory" and this great background of St. Paul's. A lotta London love going on here.

chipped plaster

I love the way London neighborhoods so often have these weird juxtapositions of nice buildings with deteriorating ones.

oyster card reader on construction site

A weird bit of art. This is a temporary wall hiding a construction site and the little circle on the outside has been turned into an Oyster card machine -- it's the little thing that we tap our travelcards to whenever we take the tube.

An impressive facade for an impressive museum. I've been to the V&A four or five times now and I am still nowhere near close to seeing everything I want to see.

My new job takes me to Westminster where I photographed this memorial to soldiers who died in the First World War. As if an afterthought, they've also etched in a bit at the bottom dedicating it to those who died in the Second World War as well.

I generally don't theme my photos to reflect anniversaries, holidays, or important dates, but this memorial made me think of the anniversary of 9/11 in a weird way and all the people in the world who have died as a result of human hatred. So there ya go, for whatever it's worth.

sunset over the thames

Back in London and getting ready to greet autumn which is surely just around the corner (if not already here). I wouldn't be so sad about the changing seasons if only we'd had a proper summer...

Every year at the Minnesota State Fair, the contestants for Princess Kay of the Milky Way get their heads carved into blocks of butter. It's a perennial favorite.

specialty sausages made by special women

Okay, I lied. Here's a couple from the Minnesota State Fair (greatest fair on earth). There are so many foods to choose from -- it's a yearly struggle to pick the good stuff.

paint jobs

A newly painted Victorian next to one that needs a paint job. Wrapping up my USA photos.

Nothing like a Salted Caramel cupcake and HyVee root beer at a Labor Day weekend picnic with the family.

London's not the only place with proud neighbourhood graffiti. Here we see some street art from people who love their nieghbourhood (Summit) and their area code (651).

Dinkytown Tattoo Parlour & Museum

I hope you'll indulge for a few days while I take a sojourn across the pond and post some pictures from my trip to Minnesota.

I like the idea of having a museum in a tattoo parlour.

Remnants of that Great Even in April. These will no doubt be available in tourist shops for years to come.
