The Ginkgo Biloba Tree

The Ginkgo Biloba Tree

Thurs. 11.21.19 – Here have another auntumnal photo of a bright yellow gingko tree from my Monday Kew Gardens photo walk. The last of the bright fall trees are a delightful remedy for the dark, rainy skies.

London Skyline, Waiting for the Full Moon

London Skyline, Waiting for the Full Moon

Tues. 11.12.19 – Happy November Full Moon for those of you who can see it. Late yesterday evening, I took the Nikon out to the Embankment bridge to photograph the Full Moon rising over The Shard and the Thames. Due to large clouds hugging the first 10-15 degrees up from the horizon, I was out of luck.

While I persevered out in the cold and damp for nearly an hour before I gave up, I was able to take a number of good shots of the storm clouds and the London skyline. The above is one of my two favorites from that hour.

Mon 06.29.09 – As I was walking back to the Tower Hill Tube station after visiting Steve and Lobelia Lawson at their house barge on the Thames near the Design Museum, I saw The Gherkin, the glass skyscraper euphemistically named after a pickle rather than a phallic symbol, framed by the Tower Bridge. I was in a rush to not be late to meet up with folks at the Phoenix Club, but I stopped nonetheless to catch this photo.
