UK trip photos (1)

And here are a few of the better or more interesting photos I took during my recent trip to the UK. These are just from the first part of the trip, mostly around London. (Click on the thumbnail excerpt to see the full image.)


Seen in a toy shop at Singapore's Changi airport; a rather appropriate name for a toy SUV, don't you think?


Graffito found on a street sign near Notting Hill. A laudable sentiment, wouldn't you say?


It's the signage on a shop on Carnaby St., though it sounds like an indie-pop concept album idea to me.


A model omnibus at the London Transport Museum. Pay particular attention to the advertising banner.

A few scenes from a pub in West Ealing on a Sunday afternoon:

Those quaintly Orwellian posters that are all over bus shelters and the Tube. It's funny how some terrorist bombs and the ravings of a few apocalyptic bampots can make the watchful gaze of Big Brother so much more comforting as an idea.
Secure under their Watchful Eyes

A rather good sunset over the Thames and Houses of Parliament:

I notice that the Mayor of London has put his name on that Orwellian bus poster. It seems a bit out of character for Krazy Ken?

Ah yes, Loony Left Red Ken. Though if the murdochs of the 80s are to be believed in, he was one notch away from Stalinism.
