Soho and Greenwich

September 2007

 

Another fine Saturday wandering around the Soho and Greenwich checking out the galleries, street art and fine buildings.

 

Soho (I think)

While wandering past people setting up for a street festival, I saw this baby "Drown The Clown".  That's right up there with the "Shoot The Freak" attraction I saw at Coney Island.

 

Little Chinese Laundromat and more buildings with fire escapes out the front.

 

And the same again viewed from a slightly different angle.

 

Interesting street art

 

Same artist ... bring the troops home.

 

 

 

Old Puch motorcycle

 

Big blocks

 

Marilyn and crayons.  Hard to believe this is a painting and not just some colouring book on a desk. 

 

I really loved these paintings so took heaps of photos of them.

 

 

 

Note the Malboro pack of crayons and the cigarette style of the crayons.  Very cool.

 

Lichtenstein

 

Jackson Pollock

 

Oil of a bubble gum machine

 

Oil of oils.

 

Amazing facade of a building in Soho.  Reminds me of the Roman buildings in Ephesus, Turkey

 

Map of the New York Subway on the pavement

 

Metal sculptures of workers having lunch on a girder while building a skyscraper

Street blur.  Sometimes, I like blurred shots.  No idea why.

 

Photos in a clothes shop window. 

 

The Savile Row W1 picture caught my eye. 

 

Woman

 

Art by a famous Playboy or Penthouse cartoonist

Heyyyyyy..... Nicole

 

Pink apartments

 

Buddha image or something.

 

Greenwich (I think)

Prime Ministers residence?  I think not.

 

Only. Light.

 

One of my favourites ..... On this site in 1897 nothing happened.

 

Shop window.

 

A pristine 2CV a long way from home.

 

Hidden houses.  Very green, peaceful and quiet.  Probably cost a bomb too.
