Carly Simon “Anticipation” album cover

 

I’ve got Carly Simon’s Greatest Hits somewhere but never play it. I seem to listen to more audiobooks than music as I get older. The cover of one of her albums was shot at some fancy gates on the edge of Regents Park. As I was in Euston and was walking up to the hotel in I decided to seek out the exact gate.

 

There were some cyclists having a chat in a circle just by the gates. I was hoping they’d move when I started taking photos of an open gate but they didn’t. Up close it looks like the same one - built-to-last Victorian stuff. The cyclists deviated from their chat wondering why I was so interested into an open gate but I’ve learnt to ignore people giving me quizzical looks. Any good geek worth their tweed knows the gates feature on a famous album cover.

 

 

Heading up to the park…

 

After five minutes you see the Queen Mary garden entrance…

 

This looks like it…

 

 

 

 

This woman is even cooler than Carly…
