Walking to Finsbury (1)

Since it was clear and sunny, I set out in a slightly aimless way having long intended to see Bunhill Fields.   I walked past Brady Street cemetery, no easier to photograph with a Leica than a mobile phone:-

Across Allen Gardens:-

Through Arnold Circus:-

I stopped for a poached egg at Ozone, a giant coffee shop which has come from New Zealand to Shoreditch:-

To Bunhill Fields, the nonconformist burial ground where one can find (but I didn’t) the tombs of Bunyan, Defoe, Isaac Watts and William Blake:-

    I, like many others, always leave copper coins on William Blake’s tomb as I walk through Bunhill Fields (usually on my way to lunchtime concerts at LSO St Luke’s). It’s on the paved path which is on your right immediately after the park keeper’s hut. My most magical ever visit to the cemetery was one November, at dusk, on All Saint’s Day. Some Polish visitors had lit tea lights around various graves. It’s also pretty spectacular when the spring bulbs come up. And having a very paultry (only nine years old) Mulberry in my garden I do like to visit the old gnarly one there.
