This is a growing archive of photos of Ham (part of Richmond upon Thames in south-west London) that delights in the unusual, the unexpected and the unnoticed.

Long shadows on Ham Common
The long Winter shadows stretch longingly across Ham Common and almost reach as far as the parade of trees that efficiently divides East from West. Beyond the divisive trees can be glimpsed Sudbrook Lodge and the New Inn.
Spoiling the view slightly are the cars on Upper Ham Road that add unnatural colours and alien movement. I would love to see substantial bushes line the road to hide it from the Common.
