Almost Back to Normal

glass

I already told how, last Thursday, I was just setting off on a family visit, and had to take my car in with an electrical problem. I took a walk while I was waiting for them to make a diagnosis, and took my camera with me. It wasn’t because of looking for something to photograph on a rather cheerless trading estate, but just because I didn’t want to leave it in the car. As you can see from the picture above, though, I’m glad I took it.

Yesterday, I went to the World Travel Market in London. I picked up one or two updates on things I’ve already blogged about, which I’ll tell you about in due course.

The only issue was the Underground … a pox and a plague upon it … the Jubilee Line came almost to a standstill because of a failed train in the system.

A friendly bus driver said his bus was going to the Docklands … ‘but I don’t think you want to sit in a traffic jam for over an hour’. But, he gave me an Underground route which would by-pass the Jubilee Line, and get me to the exhibition. And, I only lost half an hour there.

  1. Great pic, Keith. I try to have my camera with me most times otherwise, sure as eggs, that’ll be the time there was something memorable worth photographing!
    I love looking through your blog—well done.

  2. Are you like me? I MUST pack a camera, because I think I have the only mobile phone in the world that doesn’t take pictures!

  3. That glass is so seamless it doesn’t even look like glass. 😆
