Autumnal Photo Parade
Here are some more random photos from recent weeks, this time with a distinctly autumnal flavor!
I spotted this Lamborghini on my walk home from work. I'm not sure whether it's getting towed or merely transported. It's not quite the same as the lime-green Lamborghini I often see near school. My brother would probably be able to tell us the exact year and model of both of these cars, but all I can say is they stand out!
While walking in the cemetery with Olga I came across this gravestone decorated with chestnuts. We saw this same phenomenon, on the same gravestone, last year. Someone must be sending a message to a departed loved one.
Free shoes! Hardly my style, though.
A very cool wine label from a recent bottle of South African red. It would make a great poster.
A warning ad near West End Green. London has had a rash of moped crime in recent years, in which thieves zip past on a (usually stolen) moped or motorbike and grab people's iPhones from their hands, or even expensive watches from their wrists. It became such a common problem that the police developed tactics specifically to fight it, and last I saw, moped crime numbers were down. Still, it's a good idea not to carry your phone in the open on a London street. I keep mine in my pocket.
Remember that big burdock plant at the cemetery? Well, it's gone to seed. I should really pick a couple and try to grow them. Burdock makes an interesting plant. The spiny adhesive seeds inspired the creation of Velcro, or so I've read.
Finally, a rather creepy artificial critter at the cemetery, obviously well-weathered. The cemetery has plenty of real critters, so I'm not sure why someone felt the need to import this one!
