FOR MOST PEOPLE – great graffiti at Seafield . But now obscured by later graffiti. Holgas not very clear. Uppermost in my mind after #lebusstopflop – after doing a bit of research into our local bus stops it turned out they are not put up by our local council (cough Edinburgh) but by advertisers. Their only existence comes as a place to place advertising. Edinburgh City has changed the contractor to JC Deceaux a French company with no idea of the climatic conditions of this place and have provided us with bus shelters with only two walls and tinted roof (TO KEEP THE SUN OFF !! HA! not seen the sun in months). As we have been essentially sold to a company we as citizens have no redress. And strangely enough in our main street Princes St where the company obviously thinks it can sell more advertising those shelters have a dizzying 3 walls.In the outlying areas less advertising revenue NADA! I got interviewed about it here in our local paper.
I can never pass up a chance to visit Liberty’s when I visit London. And last time I went they had window displays focussed on Haberdashery. Also quilts on display hence the close up. They always have lovely displays in the shop.
When I’m in London I’m often near Tower Hill and Fenchurch St Station. There is a small park beside the tube station which I sometimes sit waiting for a friend. This time I actually explored and admired the memorial to the merchant navy. I failed completely in taking more wider shots. Sorry! but I was very taken with the number of Leith and Scottish ships mentioned. As this was just a few days before the general election these matters were prominent in my head.
