Nigel and the Refugees
My first post of random photos from my new iPhone! You'll find they're probably not all that different from my previous phone's pics, but still...it's a milestone.
First, a collection of stickers I found on a shop security gate on my walk to work yesterday morning. I find them heartening but sadly, I'm not sure they reflect public opinion.
Someone had a bad day!
This is where the Billy Fury mural used to be. As you can see, it is long gone and the wall is now just a mass of graffiti. "Nigel" is a recent addition.
More refugee advocacy: The bottom sticker reads "No One is Illegal" in Dutch. The top sticker features an Italian artist.
Never fear! Eggs Man is here!
Looks like someone who works for TFL cut up and discarded their photo ID. Part of it didn't make it into the trash.
A random smiley face on a passage beneath the clubhouse on the rugby fields near the cemetery. Olga and I used to walk this way all the time and we haven't much lately, but she took me that way a couple of weeks ago for old times' sake.
And finally, this figure stands in the Hampstead Church Cemetery, which is a different cemetery from the one I usually visit with Olga. Every time I've seen this statue, it's been holding a flower. I wonder who takes it upon themselves to replace it and keep it fresh?
