The Pharos, a Roman lighthouse at Dover Castle which may be the oldest building standing in Britain - built sometime between about 50 AD and 140 AD.

The onset of November usually brings cold, wet weather to London. But it also brings the unique and delightful Veteran Car Run, a rally for automobiles built before 1905. Here are some scenes from the 2013 edition.

Kempton Park Pumping Stations, an Edwardian installation by the Thames on the southwestern edge of London. It was decommissioned in the 1980s and a band of volunteers has done an amazing job getting one of its several immense steam engines operating again. The engines are 62' (20m) high and have something like 200 lubrication points all managed from a central spot here loads of tubes come together. I visited on London's open-buildings day in September but the volunteers 'steam up' about seven times per year. http://www.kemptonsteam.org/

A sunrise and a sunset along the Thames. A few clouds sure up the chances of spectacular dawns and dusks!

Gorgeous #photosphere of Ilulissat Saavat - Ilulissat Waterfront on Google Maps Views
The nearby Illulissat Icefjord is a UNESCO World Heritage site and Illulissat itself means "icebergs". This town is famous for the icebergs that float past its waterfront.

The rear wall of the now-demolished Hammersith Palais, facing the Hammersmith & City line station. It was Britain's first public ballroom when it opened in 1919 and at one time hosted big balloom-dancing contests. Joe Strummer immortalised it for the rock era with his song about being disappointed by a reggae concert there in the mid-1970s, White Man in Hammersmith Palais.

By the time I first saw it in 2003, its days were numbered and it was only playing host on Saturday nights to 'School Disco', a bizarre club event to which twentysomethings turned up in old school uniforms. It's since been replaced by an office building but it made me happy to see that this old wall-painting had been preserved.

The ancient wistaria along Chiswick Mall were at their peak and the tide was very low, allowing a stroll out the foreshore to Chiswick Eyot, the islet near the Fuller's brewery.

Beautiful! I'll post pix of our wisteria soon. It is starting to bloom, but not as lush as previous years.

Splendid location and nice range of beers. Service rather slow and lackadaisical - there's nothing quite like finally getting the bill and paying it fifteen minutes after you want to, only to be asked by your waitress five minutes later (while still at table) whether you have ordered yet.

Rather overpriced, mediocre menu in this touristy spot in a cozy square off via Roma. Service on my visit was a bit slack, with many minutes passing during a multi-act effort to obtain the bill.
