Ham Common, Richmond. UK.
2006 / 2007.

Well I could call out when the going gets tough
The things that we've learnt are no longer enough
No language, just sound, that's all we need to know
To synchronise love to the beat of the show

(Joy Division - Transmission)

As time goes by, you forget a lot of stuff while some memories will stay with you forever. The places you loved the best will always look a certain way to you, hidden in the depths of your memory... captured inside some part of your brain for the rest of your life, the way not even a picture could do. 

The place above was a common sight to me; I often passed by Ham Common, looking out of the 65 bus going from Richmond to Kingston and vice versa. Me and my mates met up on Ham Common on weekends to play football (for Americans: "Me and my buddies met up on Ham Common on weekends to play soccer"). I also passed by Ham Common on my way to Murray's barbershop

Have a nice day.

- Dom
