Magical Greenwich

I love Greenwich, as you can probably tell, the amount of posts I write about it. It is a feast of visual inspiration. Yesterday it seemed to take on a magical persona at first... Changelings in the market.
An elephant walking across the plains of the window sill.
A giant silver moth flying across a table.

A man on a door knocker with ears growing through his tin helmet.

A ship sailing through the streets.

And a tree winning a long running battle with a fence.




Later, Greenwich seemed to take on the character of different and far away places...

A French flower stall.

An Italian market.


Or Central Park in New York.



Greenwich is soon to become a Royal Borough. I thought it already was one!

Love the photos. What benefits will it have being a Royal Borough?

These are wonderful photos!

As far as cats go, what you said on my blog about your cat is so cute and funny!

London has the best markets. I went to the Camden Markets when I was there and a few others in the area, but didn't get to the Greenwhich ones. Went to Greenwhich to see the big naval buildings etc though - absolutely gorgeous! Love the Thames! P.S. So glad you enjoyed The Swimmer! Mr Cheever is such a great read, isn't he?

Not sure what benefits being a royal borough will have-I need to look into it!

I Looked on the map- looks like Greenwich is very far from London, relatively, of course. Would love to go there when we go to London. We won't have much time, however.
I think that the tree is winning!

I thought Greenwich was already royal, too. I love your photos - the lemons make my mouth water and the elephant and the ship both look so stately.

Are you curious about me? said...

Speaking of elephants... the trees on the fence have something of the elephant trunk about them...
