A Foggy Day (In Brixton Town) – in photos

A Foggy Day (In Brixton Town), Weds 28th December 2016

Another thick fog descended over Brixton yesterday and although these photos are nowhere near as dramatic as the amazing ones posted by Martha Loves last week, we thought we’d share them anyway.

Looking north from Coldharbour Lane – rising above the mist can be seen the top of the St George Wharf Tower.

Looking south, you can see the cranes working on the controversial Guinness Trust development.

Looking north again, you can see a Barrington Road tower block in the foreground, while the distinctive outline of the Strata Tower shows off its never-moving ‘eco-turbines.’

The fog slowly clears over the Moorland Estate.

One final shot as the weak winter sun burns away the fog.

Here’s Mr Sinatra singing about a foggy day in London. He knows about these things. Go for it, Frank!

And if you want to sing along, here’s the lyrics:

I was a stranger in the City
Out of town where the people I knew
I had that feeling of self pity
What to do, what to do, what to do?

The outlook was decidedly blue
But as I walked through the dreary streets alone
It turned out to be the luckiest day I’ve known

A foggy day, in London town
Had me low, and it had me down
I viewed the morning, with much alarm
The British museum, it lost it’s charm

How long I wondered, could this thing last
But the age of miracles, it hadn’t past
For suddenly, I saw you standing right there
And in foggy London town
The sun was shining, shining, shining, shining, shining everywhere

How long I wondered, could this thing possibly last
But the age of miracles, it hadn’t past
For suddenly, I saw you right there
And in foggy London town
The sun was shining everywhere
