This is the view from our balcony. We live in East London, where new apartment blocks are rising every minute. I had lived in North London for a long time before moving East and I really miss the old victorian houses that make London so charming, the red bricks and the narrow paths on Regents Canal, the never-ending bow windows and peeping in those living rooms imagining cosy family times.
But this view, the ever-changing light… That is a peek into something new every afternoon, every minute, which leaves us amazed and speechless… and smiling.
Pictures have been altered minimally. The camera cannot reproduce exactly what the eye sees. However, my aspiration is to show you what I saw that day at that exact time.
