Let's All Go Down The Strand No.11

Stalking The Strand with camera and pen, David Tucker presents a few new angles on one of London's most famous thoroughfares…



Where the Wild Things Are

Phew!

Ten days.

Ten.

Days.

Or Daze.  

Ten days in the bush. Ten days on safari down the Strand, where the wild things are.

Ten days of trepidation and fearful encounters and heart-in-the-mouth close shaves. (If you’ve Johnny Come Lately you can retrace the trepidation trek by starting back at June 1 here on the DC and coming forward to… Right. Now.)

Time methinks for a breather. Time to calm down. Time for a richly deserved sundowner.

So here ya go. Something for the tonsils – served up, naturally, with a flourish of that much loved old British idiom.



At this stage of the game, though, you have to half wonder if there’s anything crouching behind that sign! And you get right down to it even the sign seems a little jittery, a little quavery, a little zoned (you know, agape, tensed, “out there” – in thousand yard stare territory).

Anyway, enjoy the break. Cuz – yup, here’s the down and dirty – it’s just a temporary reprieve. In a day or two we’re heading back into the bush, into Lion Country. Heading back to where the wild things are.
