London Storybook: My Photos from Around the City – Autumn 2015
A pair of Egyptian geese enjoying a morning bathe in St James’s Park. This beautiful species of goose are native to Africa. The Ancient Egyptians believed they were sacred and these geese feature frequently in artwork from this period.

Warm sun on my back on one of my walks at lunchtime in Green Park.
A passage read during one of my strolls from Jon Krakauer’s novel ‘Into the Wild’.
So many squirrels burrowing fervently as fast as the gardeners can dig up the borders to plant new flowers for the season!
A cold morning light from the bridge in St James’s Park, my favourite spot.

One of the things that makes London so fascinating to me is that it’s constantly full of surprises – the homeless man with nothing to eat himself feeding the ducks at 6 AM in St James’s Park; the tired police horse drinking from the fountain at dusk outside Green Park station, surrounded by bustling commuters in suits; the mish-mash of crude, regal and awe-inspiring architecture forever juxtaposed with each other all over the city.
