The Water Tower

image

Not in use anymore (as a water tower) I found this in Atlanta, Georgia, last week.

Panda head

I admired this graffiti at Krog Street bridge, where Banksy and others have left their mark.

American Irony Part 2

image

Martin Luther King Junior seems to have appreciated Churchill’s ironic use of the “victory” sign as seen in this photograph of him and his supporters emulating the British bulldog.

Freedom is a State of Mind

image

The statement itself has a level of ambiguity but the graffiti series appears to be a comment on domestic violence.

American irony

image

It is sometimes suggested that American irony is some kind of oxymoron.  This photograph suggests otherwise. The words on the building are from Martin Luther King’s I Have A Dream speech:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

On the other hand the images of the three people suggest that one can judge character by appearance - in this case by draping oneself with the American flag. I have no doubt that some fine people and some scoundrels alike, drape themselves literally or figuratively in the American flag.

It’s snowing outside

I now find myself in the polar vortex. It should be fun.

Strava Segment 3250752 - Chalkpit Lane Descent

I recorded my best time on this segment in the summer of 2013, before my crash. I descend these types of routes more carefully now.  Here I have speeded up the video so that it is slightly faster than the fastest time ever recorded on Strava for this segment. It is not a speed I would recommend to anyone in real life.
