So enjoy yourselves and take it easy.

Holiday cruising

Even the dolphins don't seem impressed by the cloudy Summer weather.

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

Come on, look closer

There, on the horizon, can't you see the ships?

Friday, December 24, 2010

Deeper and deeper

Now if one of you guys can tell me where this is, I'll be impressed!
Nothing like being a tourist in your own town.

Thursday, December 23, 2010

And we're back!

Don't ask me how or why, I just live here ...

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

No more

Shooting blanks at the sky

"The tallest flagpole in (something or other)" erected for the world cup.
But guess what?

Nowhere near North End

As I am in suburbia, I thought I'd break with tradition and post a shot from over here.
Interestingly though, we are on the same train line.

Good times/bad times

On the top of the building in the background, beyond the lens of the camera,
you may make out "National Health Laboratory Services"

And as for the title, I refer not to Led Zep, but rather to the titles of two consecutive
posts by the fertile mind that is london-daily-photo 

And yes, I am on holiday :-)

And so it came to pass

On a cloudy day with some drizzle in the middle of December.
That my final day of work for the year has arrived.
Words cannot express...

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

a bit of yesterday

Here is a bit of what used to be a popular hotel I am told.
Sadly no more.

the dark arts

There are quite a few buildings in this style, and all seem to be painted black.
I wouldn't mind this for a studio...

Friday, December 10, 2010

Take me

If I catch you, how far will you take me?

Warehouses for the mind

Who could live without summer?

Not to mention the petrol station beneath!

Dreams of rain

Broken dreams?

still life with windscreen

I think we have a winner

And as the prestigious NorthEndDailyPhoto's "door of the year" competition draws to a close, I'm thinking it's going to take a lot to beat this fine specimen!

Et in Arcadia ego

And behind door number 1:

Actually, I don't want to know....

Ain't nobody know my troubles with God

In the words of the Great One (Tom Waits)
There's a hole in my roof/the shape of a heart.

The spaceship has landed

I really like our new stadium, maybe it's time I spent some time ambling around the outside of it.

Hazards of the freeway

I have had my eye on this shot for a while, and I guess today is as good as it is going to get.

Monday, November 22, 2010


Not really, I only noticed this pic after I posted the last very similar one.

Friday, November 19, 2010

Sad day

If you look really carefully you'll see that the two notices say "pool closed due to water restrictions"
At least there's still water in the sea for our summer swims.

Thursday, November 18, 2010

and if one door isn't enough

We have 3 doors in a row, where else do you find this kind of diversity? 
Long live North End

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

black and white kinda mood

Before I set off for photographs this morning I told myself I'd really like to take a black and white one.
Guess what?

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

more yin and yang

The old and the new, brick and steel.
I wonder what's moving in here?

Monday, November 15, 2010

Picture imperfect

As my blog header shows, I do include the odd over-zoomed blurry shot.
Long may it continue!

More washing

Now I try to not post similar pictures on consecutive days, But I think this one deserves to be the exception.

Friday, November 12, 2010

washing day

Friday, must be washing day for the weekend.

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Don't ask me

More strange animals on the streets.

Wednesday, November 10, 2010


And so my fascination with the freeway continues..

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

door in door

Right, now that I'm back from the dead dentist, back to my old ways.

African skies

Could I live in a place without blue skies? Nope.
And now we are at the time of the year for being outdoors, on the beach and lovely things like that.
When I'm not sitting behind my computer at work that is!

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

somedays you get lucky

It's not often that I snap off 3 pics in about 3 paces, it just goes to show that there's never a dull moment in North End.

Government buildings before sunrise

This is reminding me of that scene from Fight Club, I know you know the one...

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Always something new

I have driven past this corner a good few times.
I suppose I was too busy dodging trucks from the harbour to notice this interesting place.

Friday, October 22, 2010

sad window

This poor window, it gets sun but to no avail

What's going on there?

Broken concrete in the morning, nothing like it.

Thursday, October 21, 2010

what monster is this?

Lurking in the alleyways like a scene from a bad horror movie.
Once again it's good to see maintenance in our area.

Strange hobbies

So what do you do on your weekend?
