An evening stroll

Just a short post this week with some pictures I took one evening around St. Pancras station in London. I happened to have my camera with me, and I love playing around with night photography, so I thought I’d take a few shots on my way home. This wedding car was sat outside the beautiful Renaissance Hotel as I walked past.

A handy bollard served as a makeshift tripod for some long-exposure shots as the evening traffic busied around.

A day at Osterley

Fancying a day out of central London but nearby, we used our hardworking National Trust membership and headed to Osterley Park, in Isleworth. When built, Osterley was surrounded by rural countryside, but is now dissected by the M4 and the Heathrow flight path [which you’re unfortunately reminded of fairly frequently] – probably not something Robert Adam had to bear in mind…

We’re big fans of Robert Adam (as you can tell from here and here) and he remodelled this Elizabethan house in 1761 for the Child family.

The garden is typically pretty, with a very lovely Adam “garden house” in keeping with the house itself.

Perfect day for a wedding – a celebratory weekend in Cambridge

We took another trip to Cambridge… but this time for a wedding! Two friends, who had met while studying there at the university, decided to get married back at Magdalene College in their college chapel – understandably, as it’s really rather pretty. We decided to make a weekend of it and stayed with another member of the group nearby.

On the way to the wedding we took a quick detour through King’s College, which was looking fairly spectacular in the sunshine.
