Lords Hill Bridge, one of the best spots to view spectacular sunsets in West London. Photo taken from the bus so only had one shot to get it right! 😲

Just wanted to share with you this beautiful Sunday morning - when the sun is shining shamelessly but is no longer accompanied by the debilitating heat, and the streets are quiet except for the dedicated churchgoers dressed in their Sunday best. I don't think there was a Sunday this glorious all summer!

No clever observations today, just a shiny new building! Ok, a slightly trippy shiny new building - at first you might think that I've overdone it with the photoshop, but this one really _is_ all bendy. A bit of Inception going on almost. It's called the Zig Zag building for a reason.

Always love a short-ish old building standing tall amidst the towering skyscrapers. This one is a bit of a tourist trap but cute as a button!
By the way, how cool are these legit j-walking pedestrian crossings! Didn't know London really had any besides Oxford Circus. I'm a fan!

Did you know that London has its own version of Park Avenue's MetLife building? It's called Portland House and it looked sharp in this morning's glorious sunshine!
Rather sadly, in my opinion, this building is unlisted...

Magnificent view towards 102 Petty France, formerly known as 50 Queen Anne's Gate and home to the Home Office until 2004. Now the building houses the Ministry of Justice. Designed by Fitzroy Robinson & Partners, with Sir Basil Spence, and completed in 1976.
I came across this delightful quote by Lord St John of Fawsley: "Basil Spence's barracks in Hyde Park ruined that park; in fact, he has the distinction of having ruined two parks, because of his Home Office building, which towers above St James's Park". I'm guessing Lord St John wasn't the biggest fan of brutalist style.

The Wells and Campden Baths and Wash Houses, 1888, stumbled upon while wondering around some backwater Hampstead streets in search of John Keats' House. Bathhouses for the workers of Victorian Hampstead who had no running water at home; architect - Henry S. Legg, Grade II Listed.

Another one from the neighbourhood. I definitely have a soft spot for hanging flower baskets. It's no Churchill Arms by any stretch of imagination, but it's charming in Bayswater-y kind of way, and what's more important - it's still standing, while The Daniel Gooch around the corner and now The Redan across the road have closed.

Queens - further evidence of Queensway's claim to Art Deco fame. As it's not too difficult to guess, this used to be a cinema, opened in 1932 to the design of architects J. Stanley Beard and Clare.
The façade, including the colourful mosaics and stained glass has been preserved and restored and now conceals a residential building by area favourites Stiff + Trevillion - the practice also responsible for Westbourne House next door with its marvellous blue balconies (Queens' balconies are equally curved and magnetic - maybe for another post, or a proper camera).
