Look What I’ve Found: A Telephone Box

There was a phone box on almost every corner in the days when I was growing up in the East End of London. Nowadays most people carry their own version in the form of a mobile phone in their pocket! How times have changed.

At one of the exits at Bethnal Green underground station I was suddenly struck by a bout of nostalgia when I saw this vision in red and felt compelled to take this pic as I joined the commuters for the evening rush home.

New Frontiers

Currently I am vacationing on the east coast of America and having a great time meeting interior designers in the process. Please forgive my lack of blog posting during this exciting time. I plan to bring you more details in a few days.
This photo is one I took while walking bleary eyed down a walkway en route to checking my bags in at Heathrow Airport at around 4am…In the morning!

Four More Years

“America, I believe we can build on the progress we’ve made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.
I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests. We’re not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are and forever will be the United States of America.”
