A Cold day in downtown London

It threatened to really persist down all day but never really got there while I was out. It’s certainly a lot colder than it has been and I’ll be reevaluating my clothing choices for wandering around. Being hot blooded, I cannot overdress or I’ll cook and that’s worse, somehow.

Anyway, I headed out to Trafalgar Square for a look. I noticed when I arrived at Embankment Station that there were coppers everywhere and I suspected that there must be something going on. Ummm, yup!!

How to stand out in a crowd.
National Museum, used as a backdrop for a bunch of protesters protesting, well everything really. It was hard to see a theme. Many were bible thumpers hammering their agenda, others were anarchists and there was the underlying or overarching thing about covid-19 that has them all in a tizz. It’s odd to hold a banner up saying its a hoax and then wear a mask in the crowd protesting masks Well I think that’s what they were doing. Lots of cheering, but I could not understand the reedy voice that was trying to whisk them up into a protester like fury. It started to rain, and I was kinda worried having so many covid deniers near me. Don’t want to catch it, or covid.
Old Architecture, new Bus
What’s with me and bridges?
Chess, Checkers and Connect Four
Any mug who’s been to a bar in Thailand will have had a “waitress” try to fleece him from drinks playing connect four. This scale is slightly more intimidating.
Another Bridge Pano (before I walked over it)
Looking back at the “Eye”
St Pauls again sitting on a bridge. Bridges. . . .
So Egypt, in 1819 hands this over…. read the next plaque
This is 3,500 years old? Just sitting here, anonymously eroding away? My mind might just be blown away at this thought….. holy shit.
St Paul’s looking imposing amongst more modern peers
I like this for some reason
