London is one of my all time favorite cities. Whenever I have a chance to visit, I go through the same ritual when I first arrive. Fly in early on a Saturday morning, drop off my bags at my hotel, hop on the tube and head to Borough Market to nosh on Kappacasein‘s famous Grilled Cheese sandwich and fresh produce.
Then, full, I meander along the Thames Path on the South Bank, past the historic Globe Theater and the Tate Modern, towards Gabriel’s Wharf and the London Eye, until I’m directly facing Big Ben and the buildings of Parliament across the river.
On one such walk, I stumbled across this skateboarder’s hideaway somewhere along the way. The colors were striking on the grey London morning, but it is so quintessentially London.
