MySpot: A Long Struggle Lies in Store for Me in this Field of Color

"Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones…it will always stay blue; 
whereas yellow is blackened in its shades, and fades away when lightened; 
red when darkened becomes brown, and diluted with white is no longer red, but another color – pink."

Raoul Dufy

London, 2015: Banks of Thames & The Tower Bridge

"Twenty bridges from Tower to Kew -
Wanted to know what the River knew, 
Twenty Bridges or twenty-two,
For they were young, and the Thames was old
And this is the tale that River told."

Rudyard Kipling

MySpot: Walk in the Park

"Live your truth. 
Express your love. 
Share your enthusiasm. 
Take action towards your dreams. 
Walk your talk. 
Dance and sing to your music. 
Embrace your blessings. 
Make today worth remembering."

London, 2015: Houses of Parliament & Big Ben IV

The building that sits proudly on the banks of the Thames is the New Palace, built between 1840 and 1870. 
But within its walls is the Great Hall (or Westminster Hall), 
all that remains of the medieval Old Palace.
