Venice and tootoomoo, Whetstone

The architecture in Venice is amazing and the summer light offers nice opportunities to take some interesting shots. There are many bridges in Venice and almost all of them were heaving with tourists taking pictures of the boats passing below.

It’s not often you see an empty gondola in Venice!

Enjoying some pan-Asian food at Tootoomoo in Whetstone with friends. This picture made John and I look like weirdos stalking our wives!

Yauatcha City dinner and the new garden swing-slide-fort

A wonderful birthday dinner with my wife at Yauatcha – excellent Cantonese restaurant at Broadgate Circle in Liverpool Street in London. The setting is amazing with the restaurant set in a semi circle overlooking the Circle, and seating up against the windows. Wonderful company, wonderful venue and wonderful food.

My second garden DIY project this summer – a slide/swing/monkey-bar/fort set for the kids. Took a little over 10 hours but totally worth it to see the kids enjoy themselves.

Minecraft, Dishoom in Covent Garden and that Matrix cat!

My son, an ardent fan of Minecraft posted this Father’s Day message to me in the game! I’m very proud of his burgeoning coding capabilities.

Had a lovely dinner with friends, old and new, at Dishoom in London’s Covent Garden. The two people at the far right and far left are actually a couple we met in the hour-long line to get into this very popular Indian restaurant. we struck up conversation and so new friendships were born!

A stylistic (so I think anyway!) shot of the Dishoom menu.

The June issue of How It Works magazine had a small feature on deja vu … with a picture of a black cat as a homage to the cat scene in the first Matrix movie, where Neo and his pals realise there’s trouble on the way when the black cat appears to walk past the doorway twice – deja vu?
