Waiting For The Train
Waiting for the train to arrive from Paddington tonight at Twyford Station. The times are definitely changing on the main line out of London with the overhead cables a sure sign of the imminent electrification of the railway. This process has not been without some controversy on certain sections of the line, with the complaint that the gantries are unsightly and a blot of the landscape. I have always quite liked them, and think that railways and everything associated with them, past and present adds to the landscape...

The next month or so is when we are blessed with all the amazing autumnal colours, so I am sure my camera will be busy. I love seeing red leaves at this time of the year, and I took this photo in Marlow this afternoon. Really ought to find out what species of tree this is...

View From A Bridge
This is not the new picture sleeve for a re-release of the classic Kim Wilde single, 'View From A Bridge'. However it is the view of Windsor Castle taken from Eton Bridge over the River Thames.This was a rather unexpected photo opportunity today after giving my brother a lift there earlier this evening. It is my favourite castle, and there can't be too many people reading this that can lay claim to having driven through its gates to deliver black refuse sacks! 😊

King of the Sofa!
There is no doubt of who thinks that the sofa is his! 😆 After his fourth walk yesterday Prince decided to make himself comfortable and prepare for a snooze. I am so pleased with how well he is doing after losing Storm in June..

Looking northwards from a bridge over the M40 between High Wycombe and Lane End. That Friday feeling when you long to be going away somewhere nice for the weekend. The good news is that this will be me this time next week 😊

Nighttime in Reading
It's almost dark now at 7.30 in the evenings as we head towards autumn, and it only gets worse with the clocks changing in 6 weeks time. I saw quite an impressive cloud pattern and sunset as I was driving home, although the view from my road was a little restricted. A rather frustrating day photo wise, as I had been in London in the morning, but had not had the opportunity to take a photo. My plan had been to take a picture at Paddington Station, but I had to run for my train, so that will have to wait for another day.

Piccadilly Circus 
I don't very often get the opportunity to take daytime photos in London, but on my way to meeting Bill Turnbull for the new fundraising book today, I got off the tube at Piccadilly, and was able to do a bit of a tourist photo. Sadly the bus is not of the old red Routemaster design, but they are sadly a thing of the past now on London's roads apart from private hire etc.
