in which i am troubled by seasonal inaccuracies
One of the challenges with using London scenes in blog posts is trying to ensure that they represent the time of year properly.
Of course, when it's a recent picture, like the one above, then it's easy. Grosvenor Bridge, looking towards the London Eye.
Even if the scene looks unseasonally bright, it's still authentic.
That is not always the case with television series, which sometimes purport to be of the moment but have just the wrong foliage or shadows. That tree might still have bright green leaves, for example.
I doubt if I'd notice, if it wasn't for blogging, but nowadays I can't help spotting seasonal inaccuracies in TV shows.
Should I be worried by this trait?
