if only i hadn't been cycling home in such heavy traffic ...

because i might have photographed a lady driving a car whilst trying to scrape a label off the instep of a ( new-looking black velvet-textured high-heeled ) shoe with her teeth

young's brewery in wandsworth

whilst waiting for my bike repairs, i failed to finish a pint of young's special in the spreadeagle because it is just too strong !

then i crossed the street to take a picture of the brewery, just sold to a developer for £69 million

marble stacked at st john's hill near clapham junction

there are lots of marble warehouses and stores in south london

here the sheets of stone were illuminated by the oblique sunlight

i was on my way home from work, and if i hadn't had to push my bike two and half miles along some different streets to the bike shop for a new back tyre, i'd have missed it
