The Oracle of Ballard

(John VerWey) London: 2014 - 2015. (!)

Went for a big bike ride yesterday that involved stops at Liverpool street station (top left - cool brick and metalwork), Westminster abbey, and some fall colors

These weird metallic exoskeletons are actually leftovers from a gasworks plant located due north of our apartment right on Regents Canal. Kind of reminds me of War of the Worlds for some reason

Some funky street art in the Hoxton neighborhood (just NW of my neighborhood of Bethnal Green)

Went for a bike ride through the 2012 Olympic park last weekend. Huge empty spaces with some cool (seemingly unused) buildings

Sunday trip to Oxford did not disappoint. It was sunny, warm, and full of history. Magdalen College (pictured in all three above) was the highlight

A few pictures of: my bedroom and new bike (only 90 pounds!), the walkway into my apartment building, and the view from our “balcony” (note the elevated train in the far right of the pic - we are right at the intersection of two train lines).

"Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red": 888,446 ceramic poppies placed outside the Tower of London, one for each British soldier lost during World War I (1914-1918).

Ross Lake and Diablo Lake just off the North Cascades Highway

Mazama, WA was in full summer mode

A very memorable weekend in Mazama, WA with the college buddies
