The Lion Mask
On Sunday as I was coming back from Limehouse, this guy sat across from me on the tube. Gotta love that mask! I thought I was pretty sneaky in taking his picture, but it looks like he definitely caught on. Fortunately he didn't bite or scratch me.
And with that, here's the mid-month edition of Random Pictures on Steve's iPhone.
The Iceland supermarket on Finchley Road closed a few days ago. Here are the gutted remnants seen through the windows. I don't think I ever set foot in this store.
I suppose "Social Engineering Experiment" must refer to Covid?
In the window of a local charity shop. I'm not sure where one would wear this top, except maybe over a bathing suit. In Miami.
Dave and I passed this car while walking to work on several recent mornings. I don't think I've ever seen a car parked squarely ON the sidewalk, and as you can see, the parking inspectors repeatedly issued tickets. Whoever owns the car didn't seem in any rush to move it, though.
An interesting Deco-looking apartment building entrance in Vauxhall. Eccles makes me think of Eccles cakes, and also the old Hollies song Jennifer Eccles.
A sticker in Hampstead supporting Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi, a former human rights icon whose star has diminished over that country's policies toward the Rohingya. (And who was deposed in Myanmar's February 1 coup, which prompted this appeal.)
And finally, another interesting fashion plate -- the color-coordinated pink mask and blue hair are nice touches. She needs a better bag, though.
