Chelsea | Fire Station

26 March – Chelsea Fire Station Brigade

Chelsea Fire Brigade has an office on King’s Road in Chelsea. This is very good brigade professionally prepared for actioning when needed. That day I was intrigued by their red doors which came up in the front of me. I wouldn’t to not take a picture, of course.

On the opposite side of the street there’s a small junction which is very busy and towards down to the Thames River. Fire Brigade very often must cross the river so I will try to catch them while crossing, though. Fire Station is very important organisation in Chelsea and surrounding districts. Maybe sometimes those areas are noisy but definitely those guys will come in minutes when needed.
This picture I have taken in London but similar stations are all over the world and all of those guys are ready to help regardless of time of the day. Please keep in touch – I will update with more pictures as this project I do not treat as finished.

Flowers

09 March – Blurry day and abandoned flowers

Today weather isn’t good here. Is rather cold and wet. This is good weather for picture lovers which I am. Below something from today – flowers which were thrown out and then picked up by a street cleaner… What can be better? Second life for them, isn’t it? Maybe even better, I think.

Old Cadillac

05 March – Old Cadillac, building and something for cyclists

Today was very good photographic day. I have took some good (I hope) pictures and one of them you can find below. The rest of them I will put into Galleries soon. This car I’ve found in the London’s City. The car was parked behind the fence and seemed (thankfully) to be not “forgotten” which is great and I like when people use such machines on daily basis, really.

I also like different view of ordinary elements of surroundings. This time I’ve just moved my head up and bum! I saw this below….

…and last picture today – my favourite one. I like this contrast and elements combined together. If you too just share it with your friends.

This morning I’ve noticed that 4 pictures have been stolen from my outside gallery. As once someone said: “that’s good if your work someone copies or tries to steal…”

Funny thing 😉

Old buildings in Notting Hill

In Notting Hill are many interesting places. You can find here an old buildings but also other kind of old buildings which are rather regular blocks and might not be so “fancy” as previous ones. But are still interesting is some respects….The key to find them interesting is point of view!

Cooking on Portobello Market

Saturday’s cooking

Cooking on Portobello Market where you can find many dinner ideas, vegetarian food and it is for sure the best place to eat in the area. Portobello Road is famous not only from its market of historic things available for selling but also from its wide cuisines which came here with immigrants from many countries. This makes this place much more valuable than typical markets because this is one of the most cosmopolitan place in London.

Vinyl bookshelf

This is my Valentine’s gift which was given to me by my girlfriend. She made especially for me this beautiful vinyl bookshelf which will act also as a TV unit but just until I…..will fulfil this whole area in the bottom by vinyls 🙂 It won’t take long I think. More pictures you can find here.
Thank you Marlenka!

We’ve met this crazy dog this morning.

This crazy labrador was on a walk and came to me quickly while I was taking this photo :). I like dogs very much so couldn’t stop taking pictures of this animal! I hope he had a great day 🙂
