Columbia Road in Blue

8th July 2013

Columbia Road


Columbia Road was packed. Flowers. People. Shouting. Cameras. Tourists. Music. Police officers. Thrift stalls. Buskers. It was also fun and worth the early Sunday alarm.Β My dress was a recent charity shop find. I described the colour to my mum as Margaret Thatcher meets Kate Middleton. My Mum found the bag at a jumble sale in the 1980s only to be adopted by me some twenty years later. I hope you have a wonderful day.

    Don't apologise, I am also going through a big bike crush at the mo, your pics are mouthwatering πŸ™‚ – I'm supposed to be hunting for something sensible for family outings, but my eyes keep straying to all the gorgie vintage bikes on eBay! My son caught me checking them out the other day and disdainfully said 'you are no way getting one of those, that would be soooo embarrassing!'
