Richmond upon Thames: the view from London's "Arcadia" along the River Thames in Southwest London.
Cows in the meadow by the river, two live theatres, several cinema screens, and a fast train to London every few minutes. What more could you want?
Richmond upon Thames,
My grandkids would have to move with me, but other than that, I can't think of a thing.
I like the branches in the foreground. I was not sure initially as it felt like a fly buzzing round my head, but the more I looked at the picture the more I liked the fact that you had to look into it a little more. Looks more country with the branches than without... obviously :)
some sunshine might be nice in June... but the damp is good for the gardens:o)T
@Shaun......yes, I had some trouble with that tree branch: just had to make the best of what was possible, short of going home to get a big saw.
We stayed in Richmond last year - it certainly is a very pretty place ..
Looks idyllic. Almost a painting with those tranquil cows. I suppose a little sun, the Mediterranean and a hilltop village might help....I'm only kidding. It looks gorgeous, Chuckeroon.
Peut-être de pouvoir le soir aller avec son pique nique dans le vignoble du Beaujolais où habitent notre fille et son compagnon ? Et de là voir Lyon au loin qui est la 2ème ville de France. Les vignes et les vergers de cerisiers, et ramasser des mûres sur les talus....
I lived in Richmond (Sydney Road, real close to the train station) from '97-'99. These photos certainly bring back memories. Great job.
I'm an American who's lived in Richmond for several years. We're getting ready to move back home, but not before bookmarking your blog! This picture and the comment you added sum up just why we're so sad to leave.
