If you didn’t have the photo, would you know what the subject of the photo was?

I think I picked up the name from my parents – who must have in turn picked it up from their grandparents, as their eponymous creator passed away in the year of their birth, let alone mine!

Still, on the way to the pub a couple of weeks ago with 6 friends no-one else knew…

Possibly factually correct info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belisha_beacon

Tube reflections

Tube reflections, originally uploaded by Alan Perryman.

Outside Farringdon tube – peered through the window in the fence to see if anything interesting was happening on the Crossrail works and noticed the reflections behind.

10 seconds later and perfect timing – the ghostly figure and building plus tube train in the right space.

Still, nothing interesting happening.
