28 Photos Later: Day 26 in London

Welcome to Day 26 of “28 Photos Later”.

twenty six

Today’s photo is entitled “View from a Bus”, because I was sitting in the front seat of a double-decker bus on Tuesday, heading north on the no. 29 route towards Camden.  I feel a bit stupid for not having noticed this piece of public art before.  It is a painting called “Pecking Bird” by Gary Hume.  And it’s huge.

  1. Most of such things people tend to not notice as daily live takes their focus on other things. Usually I see much more around me when I am just in public transportation rather than driving myself (though it depends whether I amreading a book then or not) or when I am really relaxed and just go for my own pleasure around rather than have a strict timetable in the back of my head

    I recognize the oak leaves, but I am wondering what sort of bird it is!

      Really? You don’t recognise the pink-cheeked Tweetius Londinius ?

        LOL! I ought to, given that I have those pink cheeks myself. My dermatologist thinks everyone in the UK has rosacea.
