2013: Week 25

I had a really hard time choosing this week's picture: it was down to either this one or the red balloons floating to the sky for Walk for Tom.

Walk for Tom was a charity walk around the grounds of Charlton Athletic to raise money for Charlton Park Riding for the Disabled. It honoured the memory of Tom Warren, who had cerebral palsy, and loved riding at the RDA. (To see that picture, see it here: [http://www.flickr.com/photos/mastapleton/9118297022/])

In the end, I went with this one. "Brain Collector" was one of the dozens of art happenings this weekend as part of the Greenwich + Docklands International Festival. Brain Collector was absolutely mad-- in a good way. I have no idea if it collected our brains after we visited, but it sure was interesting.

2013: Week 24

The moon shines on Bruce Springsteen at Wembley during his EPIC concert during Week 24.

It was amazing. Bruce was epically good, as always. But it was also amazing because we took our 10-year-old and 13-year-old sons with us. They now know why The Boss is The Boss. It's almost as if our parenting job is complete. Ha!

I was also able to capture the moon rising over the Wembley. It's not often that you look up at the sky during a monstrous rock concert, but there you go. That's me for you.

X marks the spot on this delightfully sunny day.

Week 23 was a week of glorious sunshine. I found myself eating lunch and working in the garden every day, because I was so desperate to soak up the sunshine and Vitamin D. I even managed to get sunburned on two days. It all made a nice change from the endless gray skies we seem to have had so far in 2013.

The Cutting Edge, in one way or another.

I literally stumbled across this street art on my way back from eating pizza on a retired double-decker bus. Only in London.
