I’ve got blisters on my feet trying to find a friend in Oxford Street…

View from Tate Modern balcony


I was working up in London today and took the opportunity to drop by Tate Modern. I took the photo above from the balcony on the 3rd(?) floor, mainly out of habit. The thought struck me, though, that I wasn’t massively fussed about the view, despite St. Paul’s dome being clearly visible. I guess that’s the thing about being an inhabitant of one of the world’s great cities – it’s all too easy to be blasé about what’s on your own doorstep. But even being aware of that didn’t help me to appreciate London with new eyes; it just made me a bit sad about the loss of wonder.
