A trip down to Kent via Cannon Street…

Because of track engineering work, there were no trains out of Victoria down to Kent this weekend, so I made a rare visit to Cannon Street station for the revised timetable. I didn’t mind; variety is the spice of life and all that, and moreover, there was an element of nostalgia to it all, as I lived in south-east London throughout the 1980s, so train journeys to Cannon Street and Charing Cross via London Bridge were a commonplace then. So I caught the Northern Line down to London Bridge late morning and walked to Cannon Street for my train there…

Crossing London Bridge, how can you not look downstream and capture what you see...

Later this year, I'll be uploading some photos of London taken from the top of The Shard, but for now, this is just a snatched shot taken from the train carriage as we moved out of London Bridge Station...

The trip down to Kent was a fortnightly one I make to visit my Mum, and as I was making my way to her home, I passed a blackbird in some nearby park land, so here he is ;)...
