The last 10 photos.

1. Obligatory pup. | 2. In De Beauvoir. | 3. Gilbert and George in Bethnal Green Road! I took this from our rented car like a massive shameless papp. | 4. In Brixton. | 5. Steven Wright’s House of Dreams in East Dulwich. | 6. Petersham Nurseries. | 7. I wish they’d taken the pricetag off the chair but hey ho. | 8. Now we get to the important stuff. There are new piglets and lambs at Hackney City Farm! | 9. Proud mum. | 10. Lamb!

This is the twentieth edition of 10 photos, and I can already tell as I post that it will be – for a while anyway – my last. I never disregard feelings of dissatisfaction or boredom; they’re always signs that something needs to change. And blogging is far too personal and ephemeral to ever do anything you’re no longer excited about. Still, 10 photos was very useful to me in its way. I began doing it last November I think when I was terribly cold and a bit bored by London. The discipline of looking for “nice” things to photograph made me pay more attention – which I’m sure in turn made me happier. Now I’m in love with this town again I don’t need an artificial prop to notice the good things about it. Thanks for playing along for the past twenty, friends X

  1. Nice collection…I love the third photo in particular! I’ve enjoyed following your ten photos (and I’ll miss them!). I hope you get them all printed in a little photo book or something for a keepsake :)

    • What a lovely idea perhaps I will pop them in a Blurb book or something!

  2. I have really enjoyed these posts. Hope to see more from your blog, if not “10 photos”.

  3. Your photos are always very endearing! As a dog owner, I am partial to photo #1. :) Photo #3 also caught my eye because it just screams “London” (what a Yankee thing to say, right?). I also love Photo #4 because it looks like an upright lizard or dinosaur swallowing a street light. :)
