Day #2173

Day #2173Title: Pink Cabinet
Location: Agdon Street, Clerkenwell
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: Clerkenwell and the surrounding area has some great customised BT Line Box cabinets around the streets – the last one I photographed was on Day #2060. I’m not sure if the art is officially sanctioned, but it’s often more interesting and aesthetically pleasing than the bog-standard dark green variety. This example was on the corner of Agdon Street and Compton Street.

Day #2104Title: Beneath My Feet Begin To Crumble…
Location: Wharf Road Car Park
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF5 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS Pancake
Notes: We went for a walk into town this afternoon and stopped by the Wharf Road graffiti wall for the first time in a few months. It’s all changed again, of course. This section caught my eye. The title comes from the old Unit 4+2 hit, Concrete And Clay:

The sidewalks in the street, the concrete and the clay
Beneath my feet begins to crumble, but love will never die
Because we’ll see the mountains tumble, before we say goodbye

Day #2082Title: Catch Me If You Can
Location: Whitecross Street, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF5 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS Pancake
Notes: I was amused to find this comical bit of graffiti in Whitecross Street after the market stalls had packed up – which are usually in front of it. Strange creatures, indeed.

Day #2060

Day #2060Title: An Urban Sunrise
Location: Whitecross Street, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 /14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: I’ve passed this BT Line Box several times this week and thought it should make picture of the day. Today was the day! It’s been decorated with some bright and cheerful patterns of a tree and sunrise – much more uplifting than the boring old dark green colour which most of these tend to be.

Day #1977

Day #1977Title: Urban Cammo
Location: Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: A really tiring but fun day. Alistair took me on a 21-mile round trip bike ride to Newburn via both banks of the Tyne. We refuelled half way with tea and chocolate fudge cake. Then indulged in a swift pint at The Tyne pub at the bottom of the Ouseburn Valley before heading home. This camouflaged drainpipe was among some other graffiti on a wall on Maling Street, which I passed while toiling up yet another hill!
