More Miscellaneous Photos
Here's another collection of random photos from my phone.
First, a pillow I saw in the window of a shop in Rye on the day I went to Dungeness. I texted Dave and said, "We need this!" Unfortunately the shop was closed, and it's just as well, because I'd have needed about eight of them. In our house, every chair is reserved for Olga.
A pair of colorful bicycles near our flat.
A curious sticker I found in Hampstead. I get the obvious marijuana allusion, but beyond that I'm not sure what this means. There's an Australian company called Bud Bunny that sells ridiculous $80 plush animal pendants for women's purses -- but I don't think it's that. The Urban Dictionary says a Bud Bunny is "just a hot girl that smokes weed," but that doesn't seem right either. So who knows.
Got some vinyl to sell? This guy wants it. (Alas, I gave all mine to Goodwill about 25 years ago.)
When I stopped for coffee in Finsbury Park during my most recent walk on the Capital Ring, I caught some cool shadows and patterns on the cafe patio.
These two lamps were abandoned on our street the other day. I took the flying saucer one home, but it didn't work -- and when I opened it up to see if it needed a new bulb, I found the inside wiring eroded and decayed. Into the trash it went. I guess someone else picked up the claw, because it was gone the next morning.
Some chalk graffiti on our street. People always talk about saving bees, but I thought it was nice that this person included wasps in the conversation! No one ever thinks about the poor wasps.
A leaf I found yesterday morning walking the dog. We're getting autumnal around here!
Finally, a guy came into the library yesterday wearing this t-shirt, and I had to take a picture for Dave (who's a Michigander). You know how Michigan people, when describing where they're from, always hold up their hand and point to some position on their palm? Dave was the first person I ever saw do that, but since then I've seen it from tons of people -- it's a thing. Anyway, I thought he'd get a kick out of this!
