    [032] London as you never saw it before (picture/2)

    bigness Mar 8 '05 4

    We rented a car (a 2.0 VW beatle, expensive if you chash it),

    i had very little experience of driving on the left side (exactly),

    we clocked 85 miles in a day around our huge site (i had to get drunk to shake off the nervous tension...no, really!).

    It was amazing to see how different and non-lurban london looks if you travel 10 minuts on a car in the wrong direction.

    this is the result in pictures...

      richard -
      i love that park. I think it is by Patel Taylor and some french landscape firm, Group Signs(?) ... [and yes you are a handsome devil when you are out of focus.]

      Mason: how good is that massive development to the west of the park? the white-modernist-late 60's florida architecture kinda thing...easily one of my favourite buildings in london, looks like you could have shot "the shining" there
