More Blackheath in the snow

More photos of the snow in Blackheath and Greenwich! I think we need a Blackheath igloo! This page says it is easy…. And this one says it isn’t.

Stop! Fixed!

The Bookshop on the Green in Blackheath

UPDATE: They’ve amended the page, so no harm done… Think my headline was a little premature.

Kake wrote to me to point out that this site was using a copy of the photo above that I took on their site.  The problem has quickly been fixed, and they have referenced the photo back to this site.

Actually their site looks good too – in fact it’s well worth a look.

Which reminds me-  I found another London Blog, called http://www.tiredoflondontiredoflife.com/ full of nice ideas about things to do in London.

There’s a great explanation of what Creative Commons is by Larry Lessig, who came up with the idea. Basically, you can use my work anywhere, for free, but you must link back to it from your site…. And if you choose to modify my work, you have to use the same type of license for your work too – which spottedbylocals.com is doing, which is good!

There’s another brilliant talk about why this is a good idea by Cory Doctorow ( video or transcript ).

It looks like a pint of Guinness settling over Blackheath

An awesome pair of Blackheath photos to see in the new year!  The photo above was taken by Flickr user Andy Linden. Both of these must have been taken at around the same time, I think – they both have a lovely colour to them.

Riders on the Storm

The bugle was busy cowering on his sofa, whilst this brave soul took these spectacular photos of the lightning on Wednesday evening.

Controlled, but not that controlled…

Lovely soft pastel colours…  Looks like it’s always been there… I suppose someone ought to post it onto fixmystreet though…
