Can’t for the life of me remember where it was, but I recently read a piece that recalled sitting on the train back from Gatwick. The writer was in the midst of post-holiday blues; it was drizzling on that unlovely stretch of railway. Then, as they moved into London suburbia, they were surprised by the sound of a load of French tourists delighting at the sight of the grey terraced rooftops of Clapham and Battersea.
Paris’s rooftops may be protected as architectural marvels, but I get their excitement: I always feel like I’ve stolen a glance at something secret when I see the behinds of London’s grand terraces. Think it’s why I love mews so much.
Anyway, this is one such example. A photograph I took from inside the RA weeks ago but felt far too autumnal to post then 🍁
