Today, a day trip up to London on 23 August to visit a pal. Turned out to be a lovely day, so, rather than take an overheated tube, I walked from London Bridge Station to Paddington (well, Great Portland Street, at which point I caught a bus). Nice to be in my natal city again for a few hours.

Street art is big in this town. There's at least two crews (Fresh Rotten Apples and Toys Control) who take commissions, probably more, and the usual crews of teenage taggers and scrawlers of penes don't get much of a look-in)
