Park Life

April 21, 2009

Walking through the park early evening. Full of people drinking and enjoying what had been a glorious day.

All the years i’ve lived here i still haven’t truly taken to park life, all those crowds!

I used to jog in hyde park when i first arrived.

Till i got hit by a black cab en route and sort of lost the enthusiasm.

Could never get used to the whole deck chair thing and even weirder that you had to pay for them, like being on a bus.

Too far removed from grass and the whole point for me.

Swimming at the lido i love, which i discovered many years later.

But best of all is driving through, years before, jackie in her m.g. and me holding my beloved tom dixon star light, the last item in my moving house that day.
