London Living’s best blogs of the week
Happy Friday Londoners!
Wind down for the weekend with our whistle-stop guide to what’s been bugging our blogging radar this week, as we unveil our three favourite articles from sites across London.
We’ll begin with a great piece by Mark on his blog, i bike London, titled ‘London Bike Polo Open Highlights’. As Mark makes note, “whilst the athletes of the world were hopping, skipping and jumping through Stratford, bike polo teams from all around the world were in competing in Bethnal Green in the London Open 2012.” News to us, it must be said!
Yup – this is polo, but instead of an equine day of champagne and smart cars, this is a slightly more rough and tumble version involving knee-pads, pedals and a tarmac court.
With decent crowds and teams from around the world – we’re not quite sure how this event managed to evade our attention.
Our next pick features a post criticising London’s increasingly popular use of ‘plate glass façades‘.
Are London’s host of new, towering glass structures “monstrosities that, despite their shapes and silly friendly names, all end up looking the same”, or are they great examples of a new age of architectural design? See what you make of Jane‘s argument, right here.
We’ll let these mindblowing photographs do the talking and we’re sure you’ll all agree, these are some of the best HDR filtered images of London’s icons we’ve seen recently. Bravo.
