Imagination...

Imagination...




























Where would we be without an imagination ? Probably still in a cave staring at pieces of flint wondering why we feel the cold.

Now the photograph (above) is a #guestbollard only problem is I can't identify who sent or tweeted this fantastic picture of Balham Green (now Yellow) Bollards adapted with the help of yellow tape to become a perfect object to attach a table and plonk a chair next to.

Where would we be without an imagination ?

Bollards of London...

Three for You...

Barber shop bollard...
Bollards of London is back and may I thank all of you who got in touch after the blog was screen shot on bbc news 24. I am still laughing but also very grateful to somebody at the bbc who had the intelligence and great taste to feature/screen shot 'Bollards of London'. Seriously whoever you are thank you.

Now after my break from blogging it is only right and fair to get straight back in with not one bollard, but three. Not three for two but Three for You !

So do take a look at the simple but rather neatly decorated bollard (above) which I happened to stubble, sorry stumble across in South London outside a barbers on the Stanstead Road junction of Perry Vale. A boring common piece of street furniture brought to life by a local business at no cost to the local taxpayer.

Recently I popped into the City of London for a walk along Crutched Friars where I found a small area called French Providence Court, I found two bright (day-glow) yellow bollard(s) which were sunk into the wall. The City of London never fails to amaze me, no matter how well you think you know London the square mile will always throw up a surprise.

Bollards sunk...




























The third and finally bollard I found recently (below) was a Westminster bog standard complete with left over apple core (use a bin in future please, plenty about) with a rare sign denoting a cycle path route at the junction of Wellington Street/Strand/Aldwych WC2. It wasn't that long ago that I can remember this being an actual road.

What's at the core...




























Last but not least (below) a photograph of me, I rarely take a good picture but this one made me smile.

Me, John Kennedy...



















Bollards of London (is back)...

PS please note I have all the #guestbollards ready to post so please accept my apologies for taking a short break from the world of blogging (about bollards).
