I Woke The Old Man Up Early

After drinking lots of water yesterday and sleeping during the day, I didn’t need much sleep last night. I woke Richard up at 4.30 and headed straight to the city, via St Paul’s Cathedral.

From St Paul’s it’s just a short walk to the millennium bridge, which provided me with the opportunity for a few more poses. Richard hates being photographed but I love it.

Sometimes life just walks you into wonderful opportunities and experiences, and this morning has been serendipitous.

As well as the dancer being photographed, a newly married couple were having their wedding photos made before the chaos of the daily grind.

After a quick visit to Starbucks (I’m sticking to water), we meandered slowly to the Shard via Borough Market. I found it to be more appealing than the Old Spitalfields Market yesterday.

The Shard viewing platform doesn’t open until ten, but Richard is meeting his friend Jonathan (going to Tate Modern) who also studies photography with the Open College of the Arts. We’ll go to the viewing platform afterwards and then Richard wants to go to Hobby Craft.

  1. Aw, this is my old stomping ground when I was a student in London. I used to love going down to the river when only the street cleaners were out.
    I am really enjoying this theme!

    1. The light was wonderful then. I’m never normally out at that time of day, so I can see the light is so good that I need to do so more often.

      I get between 0 and 5 hours sleep a night. It suits me.
