Living in London I was astonished by a number of things – people exist without vegemite, an entire underground network is regularly brought to a grinding halt because of a couple of leaves (or a sunny day or a cold day), it’s impossible to find a hard/crunchy onion, telephone cards vary wildly in price depending on the side of the street you’re on and I was amused to discover Autumn really does have a season all of its own.
But out of everything, the thing that probably impressed me the most about London was the what could be seen in puddles. I was a deadset puddle peerer.
Most of the time the view was all the more impressive when it was in a puddle. Cathedrals and old buildings looked darker and even more grand and gothic than they did when you looked at them straight. I had big plans in London to take photos of the puddles I peered into but never got around to buying a decent camera, too spending what little money I made travelling.
So this week with the theme of Reflection I was wishing for rain and a whole lot of it. I got my wish, it poured down. But my goodness was I disappointed with the puddles. It seems we have nothing impressive to reflect.
Despite the poor puddle peering I really enjoyed this week and my favourite photo in 8 weeks was taken. Its the street art in my scooter mirror.

Bec always has great photos and this week was no exception… check them out on her blog.
Week 9 is Bec’s theme and it is… Old and it should be a cracker.
