The Next Step - Picture of the Day: 11/15/15 - "Easy Way" The blue blazes direct one around a rock formation known as "Lemon Squeezer". It's the only detour I've found as of yet along the white blazed AT. While I tried my best to conquer this obstacle, both from the bottom up and from the top down, in the end I did indeed have to take the Easy Way out. A couple of years ago, before I had cervical spine surgery, I would have been able to handle this scramble; but time wounds all heels.
East End slum Street 1912 ~ The Whitechapel district of London at the end of the nineteenth century was generally regarded as being a ‘horrible black labyrinth, reeking from end to end and swarming with human vermin, whose trade is robbery and whose recreation is murder’.
Mill wall, East London ~ The association with Cockney and the East End in the public imagination may be due to many people assuming that Bow Bells are to be found in the district of Bow, rather than the lesser known St Mary-le-Bow church. Thus while all East Enders are Cockneys, not all Cockneys are East Enders.
A picture of: Derbyshire, Peak District National Park, Curber Edge, England (UK). This was taken just after mid-day, so the light was very harsh! It was a grab shot as we were coming to the end of Curber Edge Walk. I would like to go back again sometime, to take a better picture, in later afternoon light when there are more shadows.
