Bollards in Perspective...

Bollards...


















Welcome to 'Bollards in Perspective' at the beautiful Grosvenor Waterside development just off Ebury Bridge Road London SW1.

These three sturdy stainless steel covered bollards keep vehicles away from this paved/watered dock area you can see in the background of the photograph (below). If we take a close look at the bollards (above/below) we see they are cylindrical in shape with a very shallow dome shaped top.

A little closer...
Bollards out...










































The #guestbollard feature has always been popular and we have a cracking #guestbollard (or not, above) for you sent to me by @JoBrodie on the Twitter via @amyplatypus @otterking of some white sprayed paint clearly saying 'Bollards Out'.

If you look closer at the photograph you can see where a bollard used to stand.

Thames Path...

No Access...




























Bollards are back with a 'City of London 1999' vintage complete with a 'No Access to Thames Path' just off Upper Thames Street in the City of London close to the banks of the river Thames.

I had taken a short break from blogging about bollards recently but can assure you all I'm back and getting fitter by the day 'Get Fit Not Fat' my new mantra. I dropped my taxi-cab off to its garage off Cable Street and while walking/marching/jogging back the six miles to Pimlico I came across the bollard (above) and then noticed these wonderful empty plinths/columns (below) protruding from the river Thames at Blackfriars. 

The plinths/columns reminded me of 'Poseidon' (God of the seas/protector of the waters).

Like 'Poseidon' god of the seas...

PS with a new look coming soon thanks to the wonderful work of the @PeepingTallulah on the twitter.
