Late last year we went and stayed for a few days with our son and daughter-in-law, who recently moved down from Edinburgh to London, where they have bought a lovely house in the west London suburb of Chiswick. These are a few of the doors I noticed on our (many) dog-walking expeditions. Rather different from the usual diet here of tatty rural French doors, but a change is as good as a rest.
It’s fair to assume that this is not the only door belonging to this house:

I have to admit that this is a pretty free interpretation of Cee’s Black & White challenge this week of ‘public transport’. However, the image – which is really all about the clouds – does include an aeroplane, which is certainly a form of public transport.
This particular ‘plane is on its final descent into Heathrow Airport in London and is just passing over the railway bridge that crosses the Thames at Barnes.
