to view a voiceless ghost

pond square, highgate

They say Pond Square is haunted. Who are they? Well, lots of people and ‘ghosts of london’ books, but not the estate agents I imagine. It’s possibly haunted by a pond, but I have never seen it (there hasn’t been a pond here for more than a century and a half). I love this little nook of old Highgate village. I used to walk through here in the wee small hours on the way home after getting off the late bus up the hill from Camden Town (with a beer-sopping bag of chips and pepsi max). Give me Highgate and its Hill any day.

    beautiful…love what you did with the silhouette of the tree trunk breaking the border. Are you in England now? The picture is dated March 29, 09 (as far as I can see.)

    That’s a great technique/format with the objects intersecting the frame, really brings an extra dimension into the sketch; writing is really great as well. Your parliament of fowls piece was brilliant. Anyway, great blog. I like your sketch of the coop; I was thinking to go make a sketch at the Carrefour…. I dont think anybody ever sketched in the Carrefour parking lot before, but somebody should.
