Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

I attended the Sister Snog Floral Friday Lavish Lunch at Kensington Place restaurant with other business women in London, yesterday.

I captured this picture of one of the members who is a picture of arrangement. The event asked us to wear floral attire and bring flowers. Natalie is Miss Ballooniverse and sculptures balloons to cleverly create floral arrangements and other shapes.

You can see others wearing the arrangements she has created out of balloons. These include corsage, brooches bangles and headbands. I particularly like the flowery prints on tunics and frocks that we all were wearing. Each outfit depicted some kind of floral arrangement.

Indeed the picture is a living arrangement of a flowery theme and prettily epitomizes our delightful business lunches.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Through

Saw these telephone boxes through the window of the seminar room I was lecturing in today.  I thought, better take a closer look at lunch time.

When I approached the boxes I began to appreciate how Westminster Council inserted benches through the gap the boxes were making. Now that more people have mobile phones London telephone boxes are a rare sight to see.  Seeing three in a row is even rarer.

A pedestrian also walked through my composition and might have spoiled the picture if the theme had not been about through. More importantly the benches help people sit out and have lunch through a lovely Saturday afternoon.

West London Spring

No I don’t tell of the uprising from pleasant Fulham folk demanding their need for a free independent territory (understandable though that is ). This post presents pictures of the flowers coming to bloom as I walk around this week. All are indications that spring is on the way. Hooray!
