With people posting such wonderful and heartwarming images of relatives, critters and connections I thought I should post a photo of mannequins who’ve moved to the darker side.
Frightening in the extreme I assure you there two are not related by blood to Yours Truly. This brother and sister combo can stay put in Taihape’s main street where I came across them on a recent road trip.
I thought immediately of the photo I took at the Getty Museum, LA back in October. These foreign school children and their teachers/parents toured the architectural delights on offer in time with us. We met them regularly.
They spoke no English but took loads of photos, just like me.
Although the Barbican in the City of London had her opening ceremony in 1982 it is arguably thesymbol of Brutalist architecture in our fair metropolis and was planned way back in the swinging 60’s.
Designed by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon she is loved (Grade II listed) and reviled (voted London’s worst building, 2003) in equal measure and is certainly an, in your face, experience worthy of investigation and, dare I say, a visit.
I love it (says the child of the 60’s) and would enjoy inhabiting a pied a terre there. Oh, the views from tower apartments.
The following photos were taken on a chill but clear Autumn day back in November.
