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!

St John's Gate

This is an old photo of St John's Gate, Clerkenwell London from the Museum of St John( more about that in a later post). The Museum window is reflected just where the gate used to be.  


 This is how the gate looks today.

  1. Hi Marie, I have read about St. John's Gate ---somewhere/sometime in my life! Interesting... It's the same now --yet different.

    Hugs,

  2. That's a great shot - a little spooky. It's an interesting part of town.

  3. The first one reminds me of a movie, where at the beginning there are captures like this one - blending one into another - beautiful and mysterious!

  8. Great reflection and interesting changes; as I started to write I glimpsed Amy's comment ... I second her thought, substituting Florida for NZ.
