Subject:Picspam - Crossrail, TARDIS, Trees, an interesting sign and Bugs, Mr. Rico!
Time:09:28 pm
It's a couple of weeks since I've done one of these - nothing incredibly beautiful, just some stuff that's come my way in London.

Crossrail continues apace, and I got some nice shots of a train loaded with track entering the Eastbound tunnel at Royal Oak Portal. Larger versions can be found with my uploads on Wikimedia Commons.



























This is just outside the grounds of the US Embassy in the West End.








I wonder what happens if you read the sign three times...

Interestingly, the name Gabriela appears on this page about Diana Wynne Jones so I suspect that someone is being a little bit cheeky in selecting their company name...




I often talk about publications in Dead Tree format. In Kensington Gardens the trees are starting to leaf. Not this one though.... I compared normal and infra-red lighting:





And in a charity shop rather further from home I found a lot of these





Tiger shops were selling several different types of insect in resin at £1 each - for some reason dozens like this one ended up in a charity shop, I suspect because they're the least attractive ones in the range. I bought a dozen, and have vague ideas of using them as game pieces or something.

Yes, I've seen that slimline Tardis around in a few places. Wonder which Doctor it is? Matt Smith possibly, Colin Baker possibly not....

Definitely one of the thinner ones.

One could imagine Capaldi's eyes glaring at you out through the slot at the top...

Somewhere there is a Mini Me Doctor to go with the Mini Me Tardis.

I like the idea of Chrestomanci and Gabriela.

I'm wondering whether they would have used the name if Diana Wynne Jones was still alive. I suspect not.

Perhaps Chibnall might do something with that TARDIS!

You never know, but to be honest I think the bigger version is too iconic for them to mess around with it.
