Yes, another retro-photo-meander, on May 11th 2015
Photo 1: This doesn’t exactly nail down the date, does it? This could be a headline from any day during the last two decades. False, every time. The only time we got tough on the EU was when the mere voters voted to leave.
But Photo 2 is suitably fixed in time, the time when they were just finishing those rather lavish looking student apartments, on the far side of Westminster Bridge. In my day, we lived in digs. These were holes in the road. Just kidding.
Photo 3: Just as photos of people wearing face masks take on a new meaning now, so now do crowd scenes. Who are those people wearing blue caps? No idea. Memo to self: gather up more crowd scenes. I haven’t done many of these. In future, I’m guessing now I’ll do more.
Photo 4: The Big Purple Cow is – was? – a comedy venue.
Photos 5 to 9 explain themselves. Above the streaks on concrete is a sign saying where we are.
Photo 10: On the right, that’s the ME Hotel Radio Rooftop Bar.
I can never remember what the roof clutter i Photo 12 is on the roof of, but I always like to photo it.
The vapour trail in Photo 15 was also this vapour trail. If vapour trails always looked this black and horrible, there would now be no planes flying.
