gordon’s wine bar *london*

18 January 2012

A lovely afternoon cheese break at Gordon’s, the oldest wine bar in London. The inside of this basement bar is a perfect example of when my camera moves beyond a creative medium to a mobility aid. I could only make out some of the decor near the lights with my own eyes. As my husband and friend ordered food and drinks, I pointed my camera around the place. And lo and behold these cave-like corners, tables, chairs and people appeared on my camera screen! That my friends, is why I will always favour digital photography. In that moment I’m able to appreciate more of my surroundings. Mighty thankful for the camera, and my loved ones who patiently wait for me or point my head in the right direction. I loved seeing the inside but we opted for an outside table next to a garden so I could enjoy fully our little rest from our London walking explorations.

    I absolutely love Gordon’s Bar in London. When I lived there it was always on the list to take visitors. You walk in and it makes you feel like you’ve stepped back in time to old London town…and the wines and cheeses aren’t bad either.

    Ah, I might have to go there again sometime soon after seeing these!

    Love the dusty bottles above the bar.
