London - A few Pictures

Yesterday I went to London to see my daughter, while she was at work I visited one of my favourite places and took the usual hundreds of photos but I will not bore you with too many - the place I went to does not look very much from the outside - I went to investigate the newly opened Stable Market - there are some awesome sculptures
Even the dustbins are beautiful...... Have you guessed where? Yes Camden Lock - I love Camden Lock Markets - a rabbit warren of little shops and the 'new' part is the old stables - literally - each 'Stall' has been converted into a 'Stall' of the market variety....

Some lovely jewellery stalls that look like they should be overseas.....
Such lovely bright colours.... (and brilliant prices - although I did not actually buy anything!! for once!!)
Then, of course, there are the food stalls - which definitely look like they belong somewhere else!! ----Some interesting seats near another food hall - these over look the lock itselfSome interesting architecture also by the lock....And finally - the kind of shops I love to look in......... (wish I could wear something like this)

Not this one though - just love what they do for shop signs along the high street......
