London photo: my favorite blue plaque (so far)


“Luke Howard, Namer of Clouds.” Could that be the most idyllic job ever? I imagine a dreamy Byron-esque figure lounging in a field, gazing at an azure sky, pointing up, saying, “Lisa… Zachary… That one looks like a Claudia…” And writing all the names down in an impossible beat-up leather-bound notebook.

(Of course, Howard actually came up with terms like cirrus and cumulus.)

In Tottenham, North London.
