iPhone Photo Parade
We are long past due for a mishmash of recent iPhone photos!
Here's a colorful piece of African wax cloth posted on a bulletin board at school. Wax cloth -- whether truly made with wax or with more modern printing techniques -- is always so amazing.
Here's something else posted at school. This little sign has always perplexed me. I think it's shaped like a foot because it's supposed to make us think about our environmental footprint -- so that mystery is clear. But how does tea "have" less water than coffee? The amount required to produce it, I guess?
In any case, I'm sticking with coffee.
I love this retro space-age sign above a newsagent in Cricklewood.
I came across this sign outside a hair salon in Notting Hill. Somehow it seemed so, well, Notting Hill-ish. I thought blow-drying was something people did themselves, but apparently not anymore. At least, not within certain Notting Hill-ish income groups.
Olga and I discovered boxes of perfectly good-looking produce discarded on a sidewalk near our house. No, we did not rescue it. But we were perplexed all the same.
Found this in a local post office. Unapologetic dogs and bicycles are apparently welcome.
I bought some brussels sprouts on the stalk the other day. Have you ever seen a weirder looking plant? It's still hard for me to picture it in the ground -- and hard to imagine why it ever evolved this way. Or is the ancestral form completely unlike modern cultivars?
Graffiti in Kilburn. The world has gone mad, I agree, but I'm not sure this is the issue I'd use to illustrate that point.
And finally, a colorful hair salon near Covent Garden. (Maybe here, instead of free prosecco, you get free butterflies?)
