Observer of Life

Sitting at my desk, I often feel like my life is filtered by the confines of my window. Sometimes I grab a camera to capture some of the random (and strange) sights. Here's a collection from the past year.


A rare sunny summer's day. I love the intense blue of the sky.



One of the strangest sights spotted this year. Is it a car? Is it a motorised wheelchair?



The Gaza protest last January.



Sun sets in a winter sky.



One of the many horses that make their way down our street on a regular basis. Sometimes I manage to catch them, sometimes not.



A lone cab cruises down the road during the Great London Snowstorm (i.e., more than a centimetre of snow) last February.



Horses of the, er, white variety.

Hi Marsha,
I have just spent a wonderful hour reading through your blog. It's 3:30am on a cold snowy morning in Toronto, and I really should be sleeping:) but instead I've been visiting London vicariously, fun stuff, thanks!

Hi Dian!

That picture of the wheelchair/car is classic! There are loads of those here in Victoria (so my comment about living in the city with the "nearly dead or newly wed" should make more sense now...haha).

It's for the rain. It's a wheelchair/accessibility chair usually used by older folk who don't want to get wet and can't walk too far. I agree, they are very funny looking!
Thanks for sharing your view. I lived right down the street from you!

Thanks Nancy! I love reading about your daily view from your window, too. The geese always make me feel at home.

Victoria, thanks for clearing up the mystery! I've never seen one of those before - but I guess it makes sense given the climate here and in BC! Isn't W8/W11 a great part of London? I love it!
