Photography | Autumn Sunset in Hyde Park - 10/10/10

I've never seen the sun this large is London and there was almost an 'eclipse' effect although I'm not aware of any astrominical anomalies being reported on 10th October 2010 - an auspicious date! In the distance you can see an obelisk and also the spire of St. Mary Abbots, an historical Kensington CofE church. Sadly I didn't have my camera on a very high resolution that day. The photowatermark refers to a previous (now discontinued) blog I was planning to post this on.

Because One Blog is Never Enough!

Too many 'I'm sorry this doesn't have anything to do with make up or beauty...but look at these pretty pictures' posts were going up over at my make up and beauty blog and so it was time to expand my little publishing empire (muah ha ha!) to cover a few other topics - afternoon tea reviews, travel, cooking, baking, running, books, market knick-knack hauls, general rants and all that jazz.

So welcome to Portobello Pearls! Named thus because I live next to Portobello Market and I adore pearls, especially black ones.  And I like alliteration.

I'm not good at keeping a 'hardcopy' diary - I received 3 for Christmas and they're all collecting dust - but really look forward to saving snippets of my life on here.  How weird will it be if my grandkids can check this out on their iPad  v.384s in 50 years?!

Today also happens to be the day my other blog - Click & Make-Up! turns one.  The number 14 has been kind to me and I like to keep things neat.  

Thanks for stopping by, if you like what you see go ahead and follow and hopefully see you back here soon!
