First Trip into London
Posted by Avital Pinnick on June 29, 2012
I’m back in Israel. I think I caught a cold from being stuffed into a middle–of-the-row economy class seat on a long overnight flight.
On my second night, I took the South West Line train from Egham to London Waterloo Station to meet my sister. It’s a pity that I was to tired to take many photos because that evening had the best light of all the nights I was there. The photo above was taken just beside the Hungerford railway bridge near Waterloo Station.
Here’s my sister digging into a plate of calamari. I had a beer. She doesn’t always dress in bright orange. She was wearing her cycling clothes and dragging a bicycle through the train station when I met her at the end of the platforms.
Earlier that day a helicopter landed near the hotel to drop off a guest. We saw a round, mowed area in the grass and had wondered what it was. One of the pilots and a hotel worker are in the photo before. I was too late to photograph the passenger.
