Illuminated trees
9/52 for the group 2017 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: I is for Illuminated

Another trip to London and a visit to one of our favourite places, the South Bank. The trees here are illuminated all the year round, not just for Christmas. Apologise for the amount of noise on the photo, but it's taken with my phone.

We only just got back this afternoon, so I'll write up more and post more photos tomorrow. The ultra-brief version is that we had a good time, G attended a conference and gave a successful talk and I had a good day with an old friend. Here's a shot of the South Bank at night near our favourite pizza restaurant.

I think I ate in that restaurant the day of the Poll Tax riot.

The one we like is the Gourmet Pizza restaurant which is in a wooden single storey building on the South Bank between Waterloo Bridge and the Oxo Tower.

Yes, in Gabriel's Wharf, which in 1990 was consciously advertising itself as an urban regeneration project. It's obviously stopped doing that and settled down to being what it was supposed to become, a mixed housing and shops area.

Thanks. It could be better from a photographic quality point of view, but I do think that it captures the atmosphere of the South Bank at night. It's always swarming with people and of course there is the backdrop of the city skyscrapers and the dome of St Pauls.
