today is a perfect example of why you should always be photo ready, no matter how inconvenient it is. i missed a great guy in a pinstripe suit, top hat and white glasses on a big bike, escaping from a circus. on the bus, i whizzed straight past a mannequin graveyard on the side of the road, then couldn’t be bothered to do anything about it. then i went to Waitrose in Balham and stood in the checkout queue behind inspiring comedian/activist Mark Thomas! nice star spot (see mint tea for something vaguely related). not that i would’ve taken a photo, it’s too intrusive. then i walked past this mirror on the pavement, but before i could take any very decent photos it blew over and smashed in a freak gust of wind. at that point i was too hungry to care.
