A pre-concert stroll around London..

Off to a concert today.  As my Fuji is currently NOT focusing properly and I've been considering acquiring a small pocket sized camera for those 'unplanned' trips out, Pete kindly lent me his Panasonic GX1 to try out... I already have appropriate lenses.

The light wasn't good first thing only brightening up a bit before our arrival at Wigmore Hall.

The Phoenix Garden was our first stop.  It's undergoing some maintenance at the mo... Pity about all the rubbish that's been allowed to acumulate..

Near the Phoenix garden is this building with the opposite construction reflected in the windows..

Foyles are moving into a new book shop... will be worth a visit..

In celebration of the 700th anniversary of the Swiss Confederation, this area was named 'Swiss Court' by Councillor David Avery in 1991..

A window of M&M's World shop..... I can't believe it!!!

China Town

Beach scene in a shop window.

Soho Gardens..

A welcome drink in Pret as Pete prentends he's reading ;)

Bike Hire in London..,.

Cavendish Square

and so to the concert.  Today we had:

Paul Meyer - Clarinet, Francois Salque, Cello and Eric Le Sage piano playing

Brahms Clarinet Trio in A Minor Op. 114

Faure's Trio in D minor Op. 120 and a final of

Beethoven's, Opus 11 Piano Trio (we think!!)

An excellent and most enjoyable concert.

Blimy, you must have walked miles today !
I LOVE China Town, the smells and the sounds remind me so much of my early childhood in Hong Kong.
Great pics as always Tricia. Hope the camera situation gets sorted out soon.

Great shots of London. I love the Chinese statues. The flowers are all wonderful.

Some lovely photos - really enjoy your London posts.

Sorry to hear about your camera - hope you get it fixed soon.

Would really love a smaller camera too - that I could just slip in the pocket.
