Lanterns

Taken outside the Grand Master’s Palace at the top of the Street of the Knights in Rhodes Old Town, Greece on 3 October, at midnight. I much prefer the place late at night, off season. Fewer people and less noise make for greater atmosphere.

You Are Free!

I am fond of Piccadilly and often spend time in Shepherd Market when in London. For the first time, last week, I looked up at Stratton House on Piccadilly and saw these plaques. They were unveiled on the building by the then Dutch Prime Minister, Jan Peter Balkenende, watched by grandsons of Winston Churchill and Pieter Gerbrandy, on 29 October 2005. I must have walked past them many times, blind to their existence. Last week, thankfully, I looked up.
