    Another graffitt/street art from Brick Lane area, London.
    I know that all it is, is someones else's "art" but I quite like recording them.

    mine look to be genitally themed. Pure coincidence though.

    Crossing Westminster Bridge, and the patterns of sunlight through the walls reminded me of something.:)

    Staying with the light pattern theme. Sorry, no genital influences here. :)

    Sorry, didn't realise that image was so big. tried to replace it with a smaller one but stupid edit time limit stopped me.

    Fascinating. But we had control of the skies by then and bombing raids were far fewer I think.

    Yes, it was not until a plane literally fell out of the sky that the Americans had to alter the standard average weights that they were applying to number of passengers.

    Absolutely true - but with Avro Lancaster production taking place in Chadderton, Oldham and additional parts for the Lancaster as well as the production of Avro Ansons and Bristol Blenheims taking place at Mather & Platt's Park Works in Newton Heath, a lick of paint to confuse any bombers was a small price to pay!

    The main Park Works building has now been demolished, but the old Co-Op Biscuit Factory opposite on the corner of Ten Acres Land and Briscoe Lane is still standing, and on the small tower on top of the remaining building at the junction of the two roads, you can still (just about) see the mountings for the anti-aircraft gun that was placed there on Google satellite view!

    Cheers, Jeff

    My wife waited (on a very cold morning) while I took this shot. I think I was intrigued by the flowing curves.

    This amused me in my wanderings.

    And to continue my Street art/graffiti/genital theme. It made me smile with the word "insert" being there.

    If only it was an amusing thing though. (Not criticising you for your comment though).

    Nothing at all to do with the preceding. I've never before seen one of these cranes. Unlike a tower crane the counterweight is at the ground and connected via a pivot system. It also looks as if the main arm can be extended to widen the reach. Presumably it rotates. This was taken on a Sunday with no working taking place. I'll have to go back and see it in action.
