Weekword: Senses

I've been so busy this week that it was really difficult trying to come up with something for this week's Weekword, which was suggested by Christine at Silver Linings 4 Me. In the end, I decided to use my night out in Piccadilly as inspiration, because going to one of the touristy bits of London certainly is an assault on the senses! So we have a delicious apple and melon martini to represent taste, me in a phone box (geek alert: it's actually the prototype of the original K2 phone box, which stands just inside the entrance to the Royal Academy) to represent sound, the interestingly textured panelled wall of the Royal Institution's Time and Space Bar to represent touch, and Piccadilly Circus in all its glory to represent sight. Trying to represent smell in a photo proved slightly too challenging!

The next Weekword will be chosen by Mandyland, so pop over there if you want to join in!


  1. I'm sure an image of a landfill site could help with the smell one :-)

  2. oh... how did I miss the Royal Institute's Time & Space Bar?? your post reminded me of the sights & sounds of London... I'm wishing for another visit to London - there is sooo much to see...
    This sounds gross, but the phone booth by discount ticket office in Leicester Square but kind of stinky... but, you're correct, it's hard to post a picture representing a smell...
    The apple / melon martini looks yummy! we've had a heat wave again on the Central Coast of California (78 degrees F) & I was cleaning out our storage unit, moving a mattress, bookcase etc... that martini would taste good right now! thanks for participating in WeekWord!

  3. Thanks for the trip back to Piccadilly! (I was there in the fall of '94--good grief am I old!)
