Last Friday (yes, I’m over a week behind on posting) I intended to stay in and clean the bathrooms, but it was sunny outside. And there is an unwritten rule in Britain that if it’s sunny and you have the opportunity to go outside, you do not stay inside and clean the bathrooms. So my camera and I walked to Hyde Park.
The swans were out and looking for bread.
A lady threw a piece on the swan’s back by accident.
This swan and dog threw down… the swan won.

I love that this tree has almost every colo[u]r of autumn.
Ravens are creepy. I thought there was something wrong with his beak until I noticed he had a piece of bread.
I guess I got too close to his precious bread so he flew away.
How does the childhood story go? If you give a swan a piece of bread…
… the seagulls will come.
And eventually the swan will have to share.
I walked all the way through Hyde Park to Harrod’s in Knightsbridge to do some Christmas shopping. I’ve finally been there enough times that I know my way around and don’t end up curled up in a corner crying. Their Christmas window displays were impressive, but did not photograph well. I also decided to put my camera away because even though I’m sure 90 percent of Harrod’s customers are tourists looking for the gift shop, I didn’t want to wander around with a camera strapped to my neck.
