Fri 03.13.20 – Sing the title of this blog post, What a Mess, to the tune of Salt-n-Pepa’s Whatta Man…
What a mess
What a mess
What a mighty, mighty big mess…
The US’s current presidential administration is currently working on minus leadership points for its handling of the COVID-19 crisis.
I am not going to link to a specific article, but they are legion.
Stay safe folks.
Wed. 11.20.19 – This afternoon I went up to Tottenham Court Rd area to go pick up developed film at Aperture on Rathbone Pl. Walking back to the Tube station, once again the Centre Point building was in its glory in the last light of the blue hour.
The state of my developed film is another post. The tdlr; is that my Nikon Fm3a needs to go for a CLA and have the light meter inspected/ fixed as the last 2 rolls have turned out too dark.

Tues. 11.19.19 – The overarching weeping tree near the Albert Memorial has made a delightful yellow autumn path to walk through.

Sat. 11.16.19 – Here we are in mid-November, the weather is damp and chilly but, yet, there are still a few rose bushes with blooms in various stages of end of season decomposition at the Rose Garden in Hyde Park. This particular pink rose bush had small flowers that were twice the size of a minature rose, but half the size of a regular rose. The rose hips were tiny and the whole was altogether lovely.

Thurs. 11.14.19 – One of my favorite things to do when I am visiting London is to take a long walk in the park(s) every day. If it is warm, I will only walk through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, but if it is cold I will keep walking through Green Park to St. James’ Park. If I go the whole way to the far end of St. James’ Park, it is 2.47 miles one way and my fitbit is nearly ready to have a fireworks party.
I don’t find this walk boring, as the plants, trees, and animals are always up to something new, and the people are good to observe as well. I will listen to music, or a podcast, or take the earbuds out and listen to all the sounds in the park and the roads near by.
I have several favorite year around trees, but in early spring and late autumn there a few trees that go all out. The above trees and clouds are winning for the mid-November 2019 autumn finale spectacle.
