I quite like the grainy effect . We all pumped for the London Marathon tomorrow / today? I'll be watching and counting how many time Shardy is either show, used as a backdrop or mentioned. I'm sure they'll get some some pans from the blimp.

I mean the photoshop effect. Go see the early colour pics of skyscrapers under construction in the 1970s and you will get it.

It is from Richmond Park

...and it says so in the tags on the Flickr page, which is one of the reasons why putting the links in is a smart idea.

I'm totally pumped for LM! Well, as pumped you can be watching it on tv with TV remote in one hand and a bag of crisps in the other!

I have the feeling that this cladding is made for the evening /end of journey ...in the middle of journey it is disapointing and boring

But is is sure that when the sunset coming the view is spectaculaaarrr !!!

Omg this airship thing has been getting on my nerves all day! No matter where I was, I seemed to be every where, now it's just circling over Holloway at the moment.

I love airships, it's been years - I think more than a decade - since I've seen one around here.
