And Hanukkah and Seculus and whatever else you may celebrate toward the end of the year, and a prosperous year to come.
This is the scene I made rather laboriously for our greeting card this year.
Looking out from the Greenwich hill viewpoint is a small crowd including my bicycle. My original concept was of a larger wall of people, such as the school groups that are often brought here, and to make them transparent so that you could see the scene through them; perhaps also the statue of General Wolfe of Quebec that also looks out from here. Later, maybe. (The picture is already made of twenty-nine “layers.”)
The view is down over the Greenwich park to the Queen’s House and other buildings of the college area, and across glimpses of the Thames to the region called the Isle of Dogs, and the towers of Canary Wharf. I’ve just remembered that I forgot to include a glimpse of the Cutty Sark, which may show near the river to the left; well, that too I could add.
On the left are two of the observatory domes, though in reality they are, from this viewpoint, a little farther off and more hidden by railings and trees. I still owe you a description of the historic observatory.
