Clouds

This is not going to be a long running theme for my pictures, but this evening we had some thunderstorms. This gave some lovely cloud images where the sun caught the edges of the clouds.

Sunset

Life has been a bit hectic over the past week or so and I have done very little in the way of photography. This evening there was a really nice sunset.

Things Lost

Possibly the most iconic image of the destruction of the past few days has been Allied Carpet showroom at Tottenham here. As Lucy Inglis wrote in the Guardian here the loss of the buildings has taken away part of our architectural heritage. 


What has had little coverage is the fact that the building had been converted into flats in 2002. It was not an award winning conversion, but it was a well thought out regeneration, far better than many, of an old building that created homes for people. 


It was a building that I had photographed for the developer and I remembered it as an interesting building. 









Canterbury and Whitstable

We had a trip down to Canterbury this afternoon. We were just wandering around the town looking at all the changes since the last visit a few years ago. After we went up ti Whitstable, for a breath of sea air.
