Weight and Stuff Report – 24 June 2013

Hmm, down a bit today, more randomness, I’m sure. It was a dull grey day, so I didn’t attempt any photography at lunchtime, but I’ve got some more from last week.

This bit of pavement art/graffiti/vandalism[1] appealed to me somehow. Its colour was a bit washed out, so I took it all the way to mono…

...is all you need?

This tall figure at the end of Northumberland Street used to look quite friendly when seen from the other side, but somehow appears a bit menacing now:
