One photo of London. Every day.

the finest polish food

Unrelated to the picture: Just been watching the Eurovision Song Contest. Terry Wogan is a very good commentator. I support his call for NATO assistance against Balkan and Soviet block voting :D

For the non-European readers: Every year all European and a few middle eastern countries hold a song contest with one delegate from each country performing and then every country voting by phone poll for who they think was best. So far in theory. In practice however Scandinavians, the former Soviet republics and the Balkan countries tend to vote for their neighbours. The UK did surprisingly well this year though being second last ahead of Ireland!

Find this photo on the new Daily London Map.

I used to watch Eurovision her ein Oz, but it's got ....ummm.....well, more boring? (could it) in recent years. Don't give a hoot about voting, but there's something about it that is not as compelling as it once was. Always been a great laugh....maybe it's the SERIOUSNESS of the new Europeans, who heav't seemed to have cottoned to the send-up-ability of it all?I don't know...

I like your photo and explanation.

I have celebrated this day, Mother's Day in my country, with a magazine cover for my wife. I hope you can see it.
