Sunday’s column (read it here) is about Gretchen Fagg, a Claremont native who now lives in London and loves it. She works for the Mayor’s Office on Olympics planning, so she’s right in the thick of things this summer.
I interviewed her when I was in London in February and saved my notes until closer to the Olympics, when the column would be of more interest. Consider it one last salute on my part to my Great Britain vacation.
The photo at right was taken on the Westminster Bridge over the Thames on a wet (so what else is new?) afternoon with the Palace of Westminster and Big Ben in the background. It screams “London,” doesn’t it? Then Gretchen offered to take my photo. That one is below. I didn’t know what else to do, so I spread my arms.
