    Where am I & where have I been........................

    Following on from Foggy’s Pic challenge.

    Where am I, where did I have breakfast and where did I buy myself a nice chunky shawl collar cardigan

    Breakfast was a 20 minute walk south of where I am and the cardy was bought about 5 minutes north from where I am



    Just for fun of course and it may help if you are a Londoner.

    Also, itís Saturday at 10:02 and the camera is an iPhone 11 Pro Max.

    PS: I only looked at the exif data to confirm my initial answer. I was at Clarence House not long ago so I recognised the location!

    Precisely that - the roof of Queen's Chapel is behind.

    Where's his umbrella?

    Since I've been beaten to William Evans (and besides, it's only a two minute walk from where that photo was taken) can I suggest the cardigan was bought in the Beretta emporium?

    Breakfast. I'm a bit confused - shouldn't you have had it at Duke's Hotel? Or did you overnight at a brothel somewhere around Victoria?

    Left my full stick in the car as no rain forecast for the day.

    Last time I was in town breakfast was courtesy of The Wolseley but wanted to try somewhere the polar opposite this time, following in the shoes of Daniel Craig and George Harris.

    A bit further up the road for my winter cardy, I slowly raised my hand to open the door as Derek was playing dominos.

    Well dressed fellow, I raise my hat.

    They must have been a bit confused that early on a Saturday morning to see someone dressed so well.

    Tell me, do you own anything from Umbro

    Can't believe no one's yet asked what watch you were wearing...

    I feel we should be told.
