Ode to the Brixton Summer

There have been some wonderful May-like days this week, but it’s September, it’s now freezing cold and it’s getting darker earlier every night – yes, the summer is truly over, so here are some photos in memory of it:

The best lasagne in Brixton at Bellantoni's Italian

England put on some poor performances at The Ritzy:

There were street parties – this one’s on Endymion Rd:

Flowers, and especially roses, bloomed all over Brixton:

    Loved the summer in Brixton again this year with a fantastic new Square and Rush Common finally getting back to proper condition providing great opportunities to get out and enjoy it. I took a phot each morning throghout Autumn leading into Spring and it’s amazing to see the trees and flowers coming out. Have a look at the film I put together from the photos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5v6qPsYn8w

    Seeing this has made me realise it was a wonderful summer… I hope autumn in Brixton is just as lovely.
