close-up adventure

Yesterday, we walked from our home to visit a friend (who makes amazing chandeliers!) in Brixton.
It is so wet in London at the moment, but we saw some lovely dripping, soggy and colourful mosses and lichten, and some beautiful old, semi-derelict houses. I took some photos along the way...






I used to live very near to this tiny road, it is so amazing in the summer, covered in clematis and rambling roses. It is an unadopted road (not owned or maintained by the council) and planning permission is a little more forgiving, so further up the road, some architects have built lovely tiny contemporary houses from wood and glass etc. I'd love to live here one day. Especially the little old former bakery (?) it could be France!

p.s. I took these with my pocket camera so sorry if they make your eyes go funny!
