The southeast corner of the vast heath that separates Blackheath village from Greenwich Park is graced by this swan pond. Despite several traffic arteries that dissect the heath in near vicinity, this is a pretty picturesque and pleasant spot. We, unfortunately, do not end up here on foot all that much, which is one of the reasons we are considering moving closer to the area.
It should be noted that the houses in the distance that appear more or less white in this picture are actually painted in different pastel colors, not unlike “The Painted Ladies” of San Francisco fame. I’ll have to try at a later date to capture the colors properly.
