Three views of the great outdoors taken here in Wanstead Flats, Leytonstone, East London – even in a big city like London, we still have our own little oasis of open space to let us spend time in nature 🙂

Leytonstone Lit Up at Night

I went out for a little wander tonight to try to take some new images of Leytonstone all lit up at night – so here we have a local Moroccan cafe, the underground station, the bus station, McDonald’s, and the Walnut Tree pub 🙂

PS The reason I’ve grayscaled them all is that I had my white balance all wrong tonight so they all had a yellow tinge to them – oops!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Lights

Weekly Smile: 12 Nov 2018

Colourful street paintings gave me a series of visual smiles this week:

The way the light caught this yellow skip graffiti painted onto a wall behind some foliage;

A three foot high burger tempting passers-by on a fast food joint wall;

Alfred Hitchcock on the wall of another building (again!) – he was born here in Leytonstone, so as a ‘local lad’ is always given pride of place in the ever-changing street art in the area;

And last but not least a tatty and faded yellow sun complete with rays carved and painted into the otherwise boring cement wall of a local playground – what’s not to smile at? 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
