From Kilburn to Sainthood – Exploring London’s creative side                  

A persistent shade of blue is tearing apart London’s notoriously grey skies and beckoning me out. A native Californian, even in London I never go out without sunglasses. This garners me a welcome collection of smiles from curious unshaded onlookers. A friendly “that’s all right dear,” from a friendly passerby as I click photos of my neighborhood, a Britishism applicable most anytime, forces me to respond with my own charmed smile. And leads me to reflect on one of the reasons I love England so.

Me and My Canon 550D

     I awoke in cool white sheets pillows tossed and a stream of morning splashing west as east.  Day two in Kansas City.  So much on the agenda--capture the feel of the city with my 550d.  Subject: The 18th Street & Vine Museums.  I was going to soak up some serious info. The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the American Jazz Museum housed in one location, nirvana right?
     1148 was my room number. I faced north from the Westin towards downtown.  A spectacular view.
