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. Trafalgar Social distancing What’s that? An icecream? Influencers (ha ha) talking to their peeps about the protest Nice Lion Trying to spot the speaker Another photographer. We chatted Nice horse Huh? This distracted me Don’t touch me … good luck! Lions…. Two young ladies holding signs I am sure they don’t have the foggiest concept of. Anon with the Icecream thing…. Toxic Flag. Nice Orange colour1 A series of images from the protest of something at Trafalgar Square today. I would normally avoid this kind of thing… 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. Nice little park Chess and Checkers 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. Sphinx handled chairs Left to Right Right to left Right to left also St Paul’s looking imposing amongst more modern peers I like this for some reason
