Another iPhone Photo Parade
I know, I just did a random photo post a couple of days ago. But I have nothing to write about today, because, believe me, you don't want to hear about my cultural competency training. Plus I have lots of photos stacked up. So here goes!
First, signs of spring -- I mentioned the other day that the crocuses were coming up. These were in Hampstead Cemetery.
This is a block of flats on my walk to work. The entrance is kind of humdrum during the day but it looks pretty cool at night.
Here's another block of flats that Olga and I often pass on our way to and from the cemetery. I love that mod tiled entranceway and the door with the gold, wedge-shaped handle. (Muddy Olga was more interested in drinking rainwater from the saucers of the potted plants.)
Speaking of plants -- perhaps the saddest potted plant in the world, outside a kebab shop near the West Hampstead tube.
This sticker on a telephone switch box caught my eye, because there's a street near our neighborhood called Fairhazel Gardens. I wondered what it could mean. Turns out there's a singer who goes by the name Fairhazel -- I'm guessing it's his. (He's good, by the way, and I like his rather mesmerizing music video.)
This baby teething toy was abandoned at the cemetery in a random vase full of water. It's been there a while.
And this pillow was set out with the trash on my walk to work Tuesday. How can someone throw away THAT FACE?!
And speaking of faces, when I got on the tube to come home Tuesday night, this is what greeted me when I stepped into the tube car -- a giant face from a station advertisement peering in the opposite window. (I barely got this photo -- by the time I got out my phone and got the camera app turned on, the train began to move! And now the ad has been replaced, so that was my one shot.)
