Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Above and below stairs at the Southbank

Underneath Queen Elizabeth Hall the graffitti certainly cheers up the concrete. I particularly like the reflection which adds colour to the grey floor.

Whilst on the roof there is a newly planted garden. It is so peaceful and quiet up here  away from the crowds below.


  1. Hi There, Whether you are above or below---there will be a smile on your face. Right???? Awesome. I love that kind of graffiti that brings color and joy to a drab area... AND---that garden is terrific. Thanks for sharing.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. Beautiful! I love the flowers, and the graffiti is actually rather cheerful... how did they manage that? :-)

  3. Love the garden crammed full of flowers. It does look a peaceful place to it.

  4. That looks like such an interesting place to spend some time!

  5. Hi there - I tend to approve of urban art - although the mindless 'tags' annoy me at times. But on the other hand, what do the planners who design such places expect to happen? Many of these concrete palaces have all the life and interest of a steel pan when they are new!

    Cheers - Stewart M.

    PS: if you are planning to visit Victoria on your Australia trip I'd be glad to offer a few hints and tips of places to see. SM

  6. I hate seeing graffiti on beautiful old buildings but this looks like a fine place for it. Cool reflection. Nice garden too. :)
