A clutter of cars - # 08/139

After the damp "countrified" walk along the Crane Valley we're back with a bump to the delights of urban civilisation. The elegant late Victorian/Edwardian parade around Kew Gardens railway station is a delightful urban spot. This photo of the parked cars and the general "techno-clutter" of modern urban life sums it up. It's not a nightmare........but some may have mixed feelings. It's a great gathering spot for locals and tourists enjoying the famous Kew Gardens, near by.


  1. Hi Roon! Sorry for having taken so long to get back here again. Another hectic week…
    Great to enjoy the River Crane stroll. The Reflection and the Magic are my favourites!!
    I prefer the Kew Gardens, even if in a 1974 version, to the car parking; probably no wonder... ;))
    Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter, still in Santiago de Compostela, now inside the Cathedral… Hope you enjoy, and have a nice weekend!

  2. This is the point at which I leave town and look for the solitude of the country.

  3. Maybe tooo many cars to be really nice, but I feel anyhow a nice atmosphere! (Maybe also because I love London and its surroundings in general.)

  4. I like the one-way and parking restrictions signs - they seem to be fighting a losing battle, a cry in the wilderness of automobilia
