I will admit, part of the reason why I love London quite so much is because of childhood experiences of watching Mary Poppins.
When Bert refers to the rooftops as “a trackless jungle just waiting to be explored”, the shot that follows was one of the most beautiful things I ever saw as a kid.. Not entirely sure why it resonated so much, but it just did.. And then the shot when they look across at the sunset..
I honestly believe that the impact of those shots on my childhood notion of beauty could keep me happy living in London for the rest of my life. I know they’re not real, but just being in London still gives me the same feelings all the same :o)
