While walking in Camden last week I came across this very colorful building. From one end of the street, it displays a rainbow of hues from the cooler end of the color spectrum. But if you walk past it and then look back...
...it's the warm colors that you see. Pretty cool, huh? It has to do with that polychrome corrugated facade. Apparently this is the headquarters for MTV and other Viacom Media properties.
That's also a very impressive living wall, isn't it? Much better than the one I sometimes pass when I'm walking with Olga in West Hampstead:
Isn't that just sad? I can't imagine who would go to the trouble and effort to include a feature like that on a building and then let it die. Seems like some re-engineering is in order.
Anyway, I have very little news here. I stayed in all day yesterday, working in the garden and around the house, doing the sorts of mundane tasks that don't merit description. I left the house only to walk the dog and go to the grocery store.
I've been doing some slightly bizarre eating, because I'm trying to use up a lot of random ingredients that we've had sitting around the house for ages. An example: For dinner last night I made pasta, but I used a box of lasagna noodles that we've probably had in the cabinet for at least a year. A noodle is a noodle, right? (I'm sure pasta aficionados would tell me that's not true, but for me, it is.) Anyway, it tasted fine.
I haven't yet devised any recipes that require mass quantities of cinnamon. But I'm working on it.
More of the same domesticity is on the horizon today. Ah, vacation!
