Roxette Concert, Beijing

Last post of the year. I was sorry to read of Marie Fredriksson’s passing on the 10th December. Apart from their chart hits (which aren’t always a real reflection of a band) I didn’t know much about Fredriksson or Roxette. My wife however, who is younger than me, is a big fan. So when IContinue reading “Roxette Concert, Beijing”

Greek Columns, Ho Chi Minh City

Which is all aContinue reading “Hong Kong International Airport”

Grocer, London

Sometimes, life fits into phases. My London phase was marked with frequent house moves and fleeting acquaintances. But for a time, Ragbir ran my local shop and we quite often had little chats as I came in to buy odds and ends. He e was a laugh. And then one day, he said he’d hadContinue reading “Grocer, London”

Morris Men, Wokingham

This is an example of a “found” photo, I was walking to the supermarket, when I came upon these men dancing outside my local pub. The UK can be like that – nearly everywhere is. If I were to give this a little more time, I would like to bring the sky in a littleContinue reading “Morris Men, Wokingham”
