Partially because I didn’t make up my mind to continue this thing into ’57 plus’ until the last minute, I’m still working out what the non-
• Old fiction
• New fiction
• Saturday smiles
• Ten Things
posts will be. I’ve three I want to do that didn’t make it into ’57 minus’ it as one of them involves me rereading Jews Don’t Count by David Baddiel, and then reviewing it (spoiler: it’s going to be an almost completely positive review) that’ll probably be next week or the week after.

So I’m using today for one of my occasional

I’ve taken a lot of photographs during the #DailyConstitutional the past few months, noting the weather


I’ve tried to make them more interesting visually, given the decent camera I have on the iPhone 12 Pro, and though I don’t always succeed, I think I do sometimes.

So, here are some of the photos I like, ending with some pics I took this lunchtime which have nothing to do with the weather, but I was by the Thames, so why the hell not?

Of course, sometimes I can’t take a decent pic because, well, because I live in London.

On other occasions, however…

You might – or might not – have noticed that there was a very distinct gap in the photos. This was because I was pinged. But I didn’t want to exclude the photos I took during the time when I wasn’t allowed out of my flat. So here they are, for completeness.

And although I don’t usually link from a pic to a high res copy of the photo, I’m going to make an exception here, because it’s a panoramic shot. So, yeah, click on it for the full pic:


See you tomorrow, with… something else.



Fifty-seven more days. Fifty-seven more posts. One fifty-seventh birthday just had.

I’m trying something new with this run. I’ve signed up to ko-fi.com, so if you fancy throwing me a couple of dollars every so often, to keep me in a caffeine-fuelled typing mood, feel free. I’m on https://ko-fi.com/budgiehypoth

This post is part of a series of blog entries, counting up from my fifty-seventh birthday on 17th August 2021. You can see the other posts in the run by clicking here. (And you can see the posts in the run counting down to the birthday here.)
