The beauty of having a smart phone on you at all times is that you always have a decent camera to hand should the opportunity present itself.
As a frequent visitor to London for work, I often have the opportunity to snap something interesting.
Yesterday for example I had a meeting at the RAC building in Pall Mall. What a great building it was too.
Not only was the 1948 racing car on display, but a whole host of other motor sport and golfing memorabilia as well.
The building itself is nowadays mainly used as a gentleman’s establishment with bars, reading lounges and meeting rooms.
All this is not exactly my cup of tea, but it did give me a nice reminder of some old colonial style hotels that I have visited/stayed in such as the Old Cataract in Aswan and the Baron in Aleppo, as well as the wonderful Jeeves & Wooster TV series.
Having finished one meeting and having some time to kill before my next meeting in the City, I decided to hang around the Green Park area for a while.
Fortnum & Mason windows never disappoint and this day was no exception.
The theme was Alice in Wonderland, primarily promoting tea and other goodies that you could buy inside.
There they have an exhibition celebrating 100 years of Vogue Magazine.
Giant reproductions of iconic early covers grace the vaulted glass ceiling of the famous shop-lined thoroughfare.
