Shoes on a Record Player
I'm off to work early today for some job training. So please enjoy another collection of recent iPhone photos!
First, a piece of street art I found walking Olga a few weeks ago. I wish I'd seen it before the rain washed out some of the color, but it looks like a collection of shoes on a record player...? Fancy footwork, indeed!
This is a pretty sterile-looking patio, but it's truly remarkable when you consider that it used to look like this. I think the owner did a major renovation. Let's hope the previous resident moves back in!
Wild jungle cats are roaming our street...
...and here's another wild animal, checking out the mounds of litter along the railroad tracks in West Hampstead. I always thought aluminum cans were desirable for recyclers. They used to pay for them, though I don't know if that's still the case. Why do they wind up discarded by the truckload?
My current favorite Brexit sticker, spotted in West Hampstead.
Remember the red chairs? Well, they disappeared pretty quickly, but in their place appeared this black couch and an old refrigerator. Sigh. Our street is plagued by homeless furniture.
Olga was quite interested in these gigantic sunflowers not far from our flat, even though they're just a bit past their prime.
And finally, I came across this discarded beer can. It struck me as a pretty funny name for a beer, even one "fresh hopped like a summer mowed lawn," as I think the can says. A beer after mowing the lawn always tastes good, but I'm not sure I want it to taste like the lawn.
