I began to realise that I was walking round in circles here, walking back down the Pentonville Road back to the Euston Road. But it was down hill from The Angel and the sun was out, so no complaints.
When I was a boy, the Euston Road was an important location. It was where Capital Radio (194m on the medium wave!) came from and where they handed out the flat share lists (real paper back then) from their reception. If you wanted to find somewhere to live back then, this (and the Evening Standard) was the best option you had.
The spire reflection picture is of St. Pancras station reflected in a bus and the chandelier is in the reception of the UCL Hospital Trust (I think!). The chandelier is huge and made an interesting image with the obligatory reflection.
Guess what, back to the Pentonville Road again! More pictures soon
Within the game of monopoly the Chance square give a variety of instructions with varying degrees of joy. The chance cards were originally featured in The Landlord's Game which is considered to be the inspiration for the game of Monopoly.
For my first Chance option I have chosen images which show the popularity of taking a chance by Londoners. The first two images are of betting/gaming shops and the third is of a less than inviting location to buy your tyres.

It was a long gentle walk from Kings Cross Station up to The Angel, Islington. The walk took me up the Pentonville Road (which I will be photographing later) so I tried to minimise my shooting along the way. The Angel is a real mix of old and new, rich and poor, trendy and traditional.
My three favourite images from the area were all pretty dark and pretty monochrome. For me, the image of the door is made by the tiny patch of white which hides a very small 11B showing the number of the property.
I hope you like the images.
I had a good walk around the area exploring Chapel Market and the lovely streets around the area. I can recommend a visit to the Duke of Cambridge in St Peters Street (5 minutes from the tube) for lunch, which offers good beer and great organic food. It's part of the Riverford Organic, well known for their organic boxes. I also highly recommend the Riverford Field Restaurant in Devon. A great place to eat (remember to book in advance!) if you are in the area, or passing through on your way to Cornwall. But back to the Angel. . . I tried for while to take a picture of a barbers through an open window, but frankly the light was a little challenging. I've included the image in the group below, again I hope you find something you like.

After a nice slow walk up from Parliament Street I was ready for a cup of tea when I arrived at Kings Cross Station. I sat and watched the world go around for a while and then settled down to some photography.
The station was busy, people rushing to catch a train, find their friends and seeking out platform 9 and 3/4! There were people working at the station, cleaning up the mess and even a train windscreen cleaner. I took a lot of images. The 3 above (and below) are my favourites and few more are shown further down this post.
