Pillars, Nature and a Ski Resort
It's time for another random selection of iPhone photos!
First, Olga and I pass this pair of brick pillars every morning on our walk. A while back someone started working on them, and they looked like this -- with the surface of the bricks all chipped away and the tops covered with blue tarps. It was very mysterious.
Then, within a week or two, they were covered with new cement stucco. I'm not sure I'm a fan. I kind of liked the brick.
A fierce dinosaur on a deflated balloon amid some sidewalk rubbish. Who throws away whole uneaten apples?!
I found this under a tree on my way to work. Turns out Les Diablerets is a Swiss ski resort. That's just the kind of trash I would expect to find in fancy-schmancy St. John's Wood. (I think it might be a magnet, but I didn't pick it up to find out.)
Fun with shadows, part 12,457!
The Japanese magnolias have come out in our neighborhood. It seemed to happen so quickly!
This little leaf caught my eye -- it seems to have been broken, causing the lower half to die. Love that red color!
A girl at school carries around this pencil case, which cracks me up.
Olga, trying to figure out whether she can get to that cat through a window. She tried, believe me. I think she sees our walks as basically hunting expeditions.
