These memorials are simple, elegant, beautiful and poignant.

You’ll be pleased to know this is the last Regents Canal photo that I’ll post for a while….
The Mundane in Mono on Flickr.
This could be my favourite pic from the walk by Regents Canal. It’s so…….. mundane, and yet I love it.
Until this week it had been a while since I posted a photo here….
Have I missed Tumblr? Initially maybe,but in truth the answer is no.
Am I enjoying my current flirtation with the site? Well yes, it has reminded me what I did enjoy about the site (i.e. the regulars who fill my dashboard).
Will I be back for a while? Right now I’d say no longer than a week or two.
It’s good to come back and see so many familiar faces and names, and enjoy again the photograhy you guys are sharing. I’ve noticed I’ve picked up some new followers (“Hi!”) but in the same time lost about the same number. It always amuses me that the first couple of photos I post after a break I lose a bunch of followers It’s like people think “Wow, this guy actually sucks”….Unfollow.
There seems to be a lot of established Tumblrs now who claim to promote photographers on Tumblr. I hope that is working out for them and the people they claim to be supporting. On a brief visit back a while ago I noticed an argument had broken out (I’m guessing it was) between the owners/editors of two of these sites. It seemed like an ultimately pointless clash of egos and a typical storm in the Tumblr teacup.
I’m guessing a lot of the old issues re. lack of credit/linkback, featured tags and spam accounts still exist. It’s the side of things I haven’t missed about Tumblr, and won’t miss on my next break.
Anyway I’m almost done with the canal pics you’ll be glad to hear, so expect a change of scene in my posts in the next few days. After that I’ll see what else I have to share with you good people. And for a while at least I’ll sit back and enjoy what pops up on my dash.
Have a great Sunday!

So you might have guessed that I took a walk along the Regents Canal in London last week. I joined the canal at Regents Park and followed it until Kings Cross. For anyone who lives or find themselves in London then if you haven’t I recommend a walk along the canal. I’ve pretty much covered it from Lmehouse to Kensal Green, where it is in fact the Grand Union Canal and has been since Paddington, in a few walks.
