As usual, there are lots of things to see in my neighbourhood. This baby seagull looks extremely well fed. Well, he is hanging around the Fish Markets. Lots of grub there. I think he’s quite proud of being so chubby!
I love the shape and form of an arch and when I see a lot of arches together as in this railway bridge/viaduct at Jubilee Park I get a kind of happy feeling. When you think about it an arch is an incredible thing – offering all that support to an often very heavy structure. Ingenious.
Rmember how I used to love chimney pots? Well, I still do but I have a new love – a very lofty, reaching for the sky kind of love. Yes, it’s true. I love cranes. So functional. Such clean lines. Such strength. I love seeing them against the sky. Moving things. Helping build things. I understand why little boys stand and look at cranes saying to their Mums – ‘Look at de cranes. Look at de cranes.’ I do the same thing.
I think I have house envy again. What must it be like to live in such a grand house? Do you have to get dressed up to use the bathroom? Is it mandatory to have a butler? I suppose I’ll never know but it is nice to think about it.
Thanks for coming on a tour of the ‘hood with me.
