London - Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus

It was another sunny day in London, and I took a walk from the markets at Covent Garden over Leicester Square to Piccadilly Circus.
Today I completed my post with some old fotos from 1961, taken by Charles W. Cushman. I found those on this link.
Come with me and enjoy the walk :)

London Underground

The London Underground has become 150 years. Time for me to put up some of my pics from Russel Square, Covent Garden, Camden Town and Chalk Farm here. Here is a link about the disused stations of the Underground.

Mind the gap!

Emptying Dog, Pt3

Snow Pt2

It started to snow here in West Sussex  early this morning.

Vivaldi - Four Seasons, Winter


Water is a quite interesting thing, almost like taking a close look into cells sometimes :)

Brighton - Mods And Rockers

As I saw Quadrophenia for the first time several years ago, I didn´t really understand what it was about.
Then I started with my plan to make a journey to Brighton. A dear friend sent me this article and I did some researches.
The "Battle of Brighton" took place in the early sixties as two subcultures, the Mods and the Rockers met in Brighton, read about it here and here.

Brighton - The Beach

And down to Brighton Beach. It's nice on a work day in January :)

Watch the damaged West Pier here..

Brighton - Shop Windows

It's like paradise for my eyes!
Off course I took a lot of pics of the shop windows in The Lanes -
I collected them here for those who shares my taste :)

Brighton - The Lanes

It was a sunny and bright day, and I took the train towards Brighton.
This post is filled with pics of The Lanes.

Jacques Tati - Monsieur Hulot - Pt2

Mon oncle was another nice movie made by Jacques Tati. Once again he acts Monsieur Hulot.
The movie came out in 1958, and it shows us the modern, sterile, impersonal and automated life in France after the war.
Monsieur Hulot himself still lives in his old fashioned and relaxed world. He has a good relation to his nephew, but Hulot´s sister isn´t fond of that. She tries to get him to work, and want to pair him off to a lady in the neighbourhood.
In the end Hulot is sent to North-Africa in order to work as agent.
Like I did in my last Tati-post, I will try to join the different Youtube videos in the right way.

Berlin - old postcards

After all those years of going to flea markets my collection of postcards has grown quite big :) On the first day of this year I want to present all my cards from Berlin. All of them are older as I fancy 50ies to 70ies style. Enjoy watching!
