Friday Jukebox: The Loop

Joined-up blogging! I wrote a post called The Loop and now here is a song with the same name! And the aforementioned post was about trains, and this has a sort-of-train-like rhythm! This blog isn’t just thrown together, you know… Read the rest of this entry »

The Loop

Sky, roofs, aerials

There are three railway lines that run through Greenwich and Bexley Boroughs. Each runs east to west, or west to east, if you prefer.

It is right up the top of my ‘to watch’ list now.

Dartford, the death of a high street and the awkwardness of wandering around a town taking photos

Snooker hall sign and Netplay sign in Dartford

On Sunday I found myself in Dartford. I hadn’t planned on being there, but as I made my way into the town I thought I’d take a few photos on my phone.  Read the rest of this entry »
