Neal's Yard

    Newer Older

    I had the oddest experience here.

    The day after @Media, Jeremy led a group of us out to lunch. We wandered up from St. James's Park, through Covent Garden, and ended up entering this little side alley into a place called Neal's Yard that (I thought) I'd never heard of before.

    As soon as we walked in, I'm sure my eyes bulged. "I've been here, I've totally been here..." I said, continuing with "...on Flickr."

    Sure enough, not two or three days prior, I had seen this photo.

    First time that's happened to me. Very odd online/offline world muddying happening here, and I'm guessing it's far from the last time that'll happen, now that we have Flickr.

    steena, C. R. Wygal, and ysbee added this photo to their favorites.

      Hehehe, yeah that's certainly going to happen more often from now on.

      I haven't really had that myself (yet), though I did have it from getting to locations in London that I'd visited 6 years ago and going "hey.. I was here as an even younger kid! cool…"

      Several folks in the group thought they had seen Neal's Yard before.

      Flickr = Deja Vu.

      You're around London, Dave?

      I swear I saw you on New Oxford Street last week. I was going to stop you (or your doppelganger) to introduce myself but developed massive stagefright instead.

      I was most definitely on New Oxford last week. Tuesday afternoon, to be precise. Shoulda said hi!

      I saw Trumanswater play in the basement of that skate shop. We then went up after with their drummer to eat organic dates. Lovely.

      Pretty amazing when the world blends like that. I haven't had it happen to me in that direction, only seeing shots of things/places that I know well and can ID on site (such as a particular small waterfall in RMNP).

      Rough Trade is under the skate shop, good records, moody record geek staff behind the counter. Probably blew the equivalent of house deposit down there in my 8 years in the big smoke.
