I am recovered from the frantic couple of weeks I had. After spending nearly all day story boarding yesterday, today I picked up my camera (it has been too long!) and took it for a walk. A walk from my home to Chelsea along the Thames Path has long been on my list of things to do, and today was the day.
The weather was a bit unstable, the first half was sunny, but halfway it started raining – quite seriously. But after my mother send me a red Senz umbrella
I take rain with an even bigger smile than I already did.
Their tagline is a brilliant one: “Rain is liquid sunshine”.
How can you not like rain if you look at it like that.
Three of todays photos (click thumbs for the large versions):
I met Cyberman in Pimlico Gardens, a very weird statue indeed. The rest of his body was naked, so I wondered why he bothered to wear the helmet at all. Maybe he didn’t want to be recognized?
The Red Phonebox was too tempting, I still love those phoneboxes and the red letter boxes too by the way. And with Batttersea Powerstation in the background, it was a picture I had to take.
And the last one shows you what nice things rain can do for you. Because now it looks like the Pharao figure in the middle is crying. Isn’t that beautiful? She also has a raindrop on her chin. She is situated on a bench along the Chelsea Embankment, in case you want to visit her.
I walked onto the Albert Bridge, and as the rain didn’t want to stop, from there into the cinema in Chelsea where I saw Vantage Point (don’t bother). Walked a bit further onto Fulham, had a bite to eat, made some more changes to my story board, wrote a post titled “5 reasons why you should story board your short” which I will post tomorrow, had a cup of tea and went into Fulham Cinema to see The Other Boleyn Girl.
Which wasn’t a bad film, and Scarlett Johansson is fantastic (as always). But why do they make a film about a part of the English history without any Brit actors in the lead roles. It is very weird to see all those Americans struggle to talk proper English.
