Or "shit", as we non-highfallutin' types call it.
So true I said it twice!
Nice archive photo here:
Couple of weeks left to see this - The bendy architectural wonder of the Peace Pavilion in Brockwell Park, south London
I like the look of that - will ave to go and check it out
I liked it.
How much do you like it? Its for sale!
That is a great view of the shard.
Is it a crop circle? No, it's the rather cool looking yellowed grass made by the Peace Pavillion.
I am really sorry I missed this.
If it's any consolation, I missed seeing the peace pavillion there too, but the grass scar was cooler than most, and the cafe's excellent icecream partly made up for it.
It's the pattern caused by the esoteric chemical jets used on the ships of our Saurian overlords!

Late afternoon in Brockwell Park – African drumming, dancers and picnickers
I love the park, especially in the good weather, although there are some irresponsible people who just won't clean up after themselves. Or people who think that if the bins are full, they can leave the remainder of their picnic or fried chicken at the side of the bin and the foxes and birds won't rip it everywhere.
editor , maybe you might have some insight, given your recent piece, but I was recently in the Secret Garden, by the kids splash, and I noticed that most of the benches are dedicated to men who would seem to have died tragically young in the late 80s to 2000, which made me think it might be a memorial to guys who passed away from AIDS. Maybe my imagination running wild, a lovely place to have such a memorial. Do you know if this is the case?
