Lots of iPhotos
As usual, my iPhone has been collecting random photos over the past few weeks...
First, some dramatic light and shadow on a recent morning when I was walking the dog behind the housing estate near our flat.
This is from a tube advertisement for a life insurance and investments company. I'm guessing most Scottish Widows don't look like that, though.
This was a student art project photographed at school -- a straight-on representation of a blowfish. Awesome!
I love reading on our garden bench, beneath our Japanese maple, because I get such great shadows on the pages of my books!
Remember the volunteer hellebore that got cut down and paved over during our sidewalk repairs a few months back? Well, darned if it didn't come up again from the roots. You can't keep a good hellebore down!
These posters popped up along Finchley Road during the recent election. "Enough is enough," Theresa May famously said after the incidents of terrorism we experienced during the spring. The posters, obviously by a Labour supporter, turn her own words against her.
And speaking of leftist politics, the Grenfell Tower disaster has raised questions about class and the mistreatment (or disregard) for public housing tenants. These posters appeared in Bloomsbury, publicizing a political meeting about the incident.
Every time I go to our friend Sally's house I'm envious of her collection of beautiful old children's books.
Finally, Olga and I came across some huge hollyhocks along a public path near the cemetery on Sunday. We have a few in our garden but they aren't this big!
