welcome to the underworld

Who knows what lies behind the entrance to Strand Station? The allure of the eerie world beneath the surface of London:  abandoned underground stations, forgotten tunnels, deserted platforms, empty booking offices…

Quem sabe o que está escondido atrás da entrada de Strand Station? O encanto do mundo fantasmagórico sob a superfície de Londres: estações de metrô abandonadastúneis esquecidos, plataformas desertas, bilheterias vazias…

the next stop …

I love these new Circle Line trains. They are spacious, bright and comfortable; and you can see all the way through, from one end to the other.

Gosto muito dos novos comboios na Circle Line. São espaçosos, bem iluminados e confortáveis; e dá para ver ao longo de todo o trem, de começo ao fim.

inside out

Looking through windows, looking at windows and looking into windows.
Olhando pelas janelas, olhando para as janelas e olhando dentro das janelas.

stepping into puddles

With all the rain we have been having recently, it’s quite difficult to avoid the puddles! As well as jumping into them, it is also good to have a deep look sometimes.  The comments from passersby when they see someone bending over a puddle are quite funny too …

Com tanta chuva, as vezes fica difícil evitar as poças. São boas para entrar pulando e também para olhar profundamente. Vale a pena também ouvir os comentários dos passantes ao ver alguém curvado sobre uma poça para tirar fotos …

twelfth night and the twelve knits of christmas

All the characters from ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas‘ were beautifully knitted and amusingly displayed by Trish in the window of Creations Wool Shop, Barnes, London SW13, using patterns found in ‘The Twelve Knits of Christmas’ by Fiona Goble.

As personagens da canção, ‘Os Doze Dias de Natal‘, em tricô, na vitrine duma loja de armarinho em Barnes, Londres SW13.
