From the top: corner of Grays Inn Road and Pentonville Road; the Regent Canal and Granary Square; St Martin's College construction room; Granary Square and reflection; Sir John Soane's Mausoleum - he was the architect of the Bank of England, and this little construction (with Karl Marx's tomb the only Grade 1 listed buildings in London) was supposedly the model for Giles Gilbert Scott's telephone kiosk; the back of Coal Drops Yard; Stable Yard (the back of Granary Square); Kings Cross Station, with a modern Flying Scotsman.

The Magnificent Seven - Ann, Barry and Sue, Jane, Jonathan and Sue and me - attended an evening at the Royal Society in London, where Ann received the Fenton Medal and Honorary Life Membership of the Royal Photographic Society and the approbation of her peers in the world of photography. Charles II seemed unimpressed, but then he didn't know what Photoshop was, or he'd have had that nose fixed.

Some of the debris from the village fireworks that Sadie and I collected on Sunday morning. 64 rockets were fired and we found only 26 sticks. Either someone else had collected them up or there were 38 rocket remains in back gardens all up the High Street. In the afternoon we took Ted for a walk with Ian and Isla. Meredith had finally lost her wobbly tooth and kept feeling the gap with her tongue.
