Another quick post because I’m teaching in the morning and am only looking at 3 hours sleep… again ;-(.
When I was in London recently I stayed in the area known as Earls Court. I decided this for a number of reasons, namely; it was reasonably priced (for London); I could get to and from Heathrow without having to change trains with my luggage, and it was on the Circle and Piccadilly lines – which made it easy to get around to the main attractions in downtown London via the Tube. Considering I was only there for a couple of days before needing to be in Cambridge, it worked out really, really well.
Anyway, the first half of these shots where taken near where I was staying (I was only about 100 metres from Earls Court Station); the rest of the photo’s were of that famous institution, Harrods. I’d never been before and whilst I’m not a big shopper I thought I may as well drop in and have a brief look. Even though its starting to look a little tired, I couldn’t help but be impressed with its architecture. In its heyday I’m sure it would of been the ‘toast of the town’ for shoppers all over the UK.
