Highgate Cemetery and Hampstead Heath
Saturday 11th January 2020
I went for an urban walk this morning while Erika was at her Japanese school - took in Highgate Cemetery and Hampstead Heath.
London January 2020
The entrance to Highgate Cemetery West.
There was a pleasing lack of messing about with this sign.
Although I did of course go and see Karl Marx's grave, I didn't get to see the other apparent highlight of the cemetery as suggested by the previous sign.
Interested to see quite a lot of Celtic crosses.
This headstone seemed to get to the crux of the matter rather directly.
A roof in Highgate village.
They couldn't decide what to specialise in.
On to Hampstead Heath.
Finally a bit of blue sky.
At least in this direction.
Still looked a bit grey looking south into London.
...but blue looking back towards Highgate.
I thought the muddled greys of the drizzle over London's skyline seen from a distance looked interesting.
A close-up to demonstrate.
Heading back towards home now. This is the delightful Georgian Little Green Street.
I like the effect of these berries and the blue sky here.
I had taken delivery of a couple of cases of Breaky Bottom yesteryday and thought I would catalogue them.
Also included this very nice card from Peter.
Even the cases are attractive.
Safely stored in the cellar.
