Yesterday was vivid. The exuberant creativity of a passing cyclist embellished the day and boosted our happiness in a way that sweaty lycra never would.
Instagram @bondwimbledon added to a day that was full of texture and sensation. Starting with a purple cabbage.
In truth the day actually started with dusty, filthy feet when I got a little lost on Wimbledon Common, but nobody needs to see those bad boys on a Monday morning. The inevitability of Autumn gave more texture with fallen Oak leaves which have way more charm than my grubby toes.
Fuelled by lunch from Wimbledon Market, Turkish flat breads and salad.
We set off for the Sky Garden in the City for vertiginous views and some much needed, after the last 20 months, or so, family time out and about.
Even there,in a highly controlled environment, Autumn gave us some gorgeous form and texture.
Natures way of mimicking the King of Bling!
The Sky Garden is an extraordinary place to people watch although the style bar for the day had been set to unreachable high standards already. An accidental photographic moment , the red crane that forms a tick, sums up my relationship with London. Some of the best moments of my working life were had in hospitals that are part of the annonymity of this urban landscape. Some wonderful friendships were formed within the boundaries of this image.
A Sunday well spent!
