I'm off to Florida today, and I still have to pack and get myself to the airport. (Fortunately my flight isn't until about 2 p.m.) So it's a good day for a quick post of some random photos!
I've photographed this woman before. I see her around our neighborhood all the time. She makes her own clothes and has some very interesting fashion sense. Her dresses all seem to follow this basic pattern, but she has quite a few of them in different fabrics.
(This picture is from way back in July. I just never blogged it, probably because it's blurry. But oh well.)
Doesn't this footstool (or pouf or whatever it is) look like a giant squash? Ghostly Olga, reflected in the furniture store window, thinks so.
Some of you liked the unusual dormitories at the University of East London that I blogged last weekend. Here's another view. Like all panos, it's a bit distorted -- the buildings are actually all the same size, and the two pairs face each other at a slight angle, if you can picture that.
No idea what this is about. Some paranoid gibberish, probably.
An interesting letter box in a front door near Childs Hill.

This tree is on our street, and as you can see it's been positively consumed by that vine. (I think it's a hops vine, as in hops used in beer, but I'm not sure.) I wrote the council to let them know it needs to be cleared but I haven't heard anything back. I have half a mind to do it myself -- I think the tree is doomed otherwise -- but first I'd have to check with the person who lives in the nearest house. For all I know they planted that vine and maybe they like it. And then I wonder, am I being a busybody?
Discarded office furniture, with chicken bones. Urban life!
And finally, a rainbow flag on the path to a nearby shopping center. I have no idea what it's doing there, but it looks pretty bedraggled so I imagine it's been there a while!
