The occupiers of the barge did seem to be having a great time on the Canal as they rather zig zagged down Regents Canal in London.

Leaving Regents Park you can walk down Regents Canal towards Little Venice. There are some serious mansions down this part of the canal, the juxtaposition of the multi million pound houses and this slightly down at heel barge (more tomorrow) quite struck me.


Continuing our look at St John’s Lodge Gardens in Regents Park, London we came across this statue called Shepherdess by C. L. Hartwell RA for Gertrude and Bertie Weaver 1931.

Continuing our walk around Regents Park on the London Photo Walk this weekend we were taken a little off the beaten track and visited the St John’s Lodge Gardens. These gardens were created as a place ‘fit for meditation’ and they certainly fulfil that brief – a really peaceful oasis away from the bustle of the main Regents Park areas.

In these gardens is this statue – The Awakening by Wuts Safardiar commemorating Anne Lydia Evans (1929-99).

We took part in the London Photo Walk yesterday -we had a good look around Regents Park and Little Venice. So, we’ll start at the start – here’s a black and white image of one of many fountains in the park.

I think this is the first picture on the blog that isn’t from Essex. This was taken on the last London Photowalk which visited Brixton and this image was picked as one of the best of the day.

I’m going on my 2nd London Photowalk today – visiting Richmond. If you are interested in joining a group of photographers photographing London – and it’s open to all – beginners to pros and everyone in between are welcome – you can get more details at The London Photowalk website.
