Welcome to Breakfast in America

My photo journal is an eclectic mix of things; there’s no guiding theme or topic. It is whatever happens to catch my attention, what I’ve been thinking, doing, and whatever my current obsessions are. At the moment, they are clearing some of the backlog on my ‘honey-do’ list, backpacking, hammock camping, and, I’m always, taking pictures.

    I was in a meeting in an adjacent building when I saw this picture. The only trouble is the light had changed by the time the meeting finished and the shadows of the trees were no longer on the building front panels. Oh well. Maybe I should have stopped the meeting and grabbed the shot.

    Not very subtle architecture… But I love the way the sky was reflected in the windows and glass.

    As this picture seems to get a lot of interest from people searching for information on the Slindon Street Sorting Office, here’s some additional information.

    It was built in the late 1970s and was occupied by the Royal Mail until late 2016 when most of the operations moved to Voyager Park in Copnor.

    The Slindon Street Post Office is still located in the building. There are proposals for developing the site. For more information visit: https://slindonstreet.co.uk

    Today I had the first meeting about the divorce with my solicitor. There I was thinking I’d got some clarity in my life. In fact all I’ve done is stirred up all the muck and now I can’t see a thing.
