Ah the serendipity. This is one of those things that I've seen on just about every other London blogger's site; I never went searching for it. I just assumed if I ever ran across it I'd be more of a Londoner than if I didn't; and if I didn't then it wasn't meant to be.

Make of that what you will, either way, makes for fun pictures!

That is crazy!! How do you really know which one to follow? I've never seen anything like that!

I'm moving to London soon, so I'll have to be on the lookout for such sites to share!

That's right by my old flat. It's fantastic.

You're not supposed to follow any of them, it's just "art"! Bit dangerous having it in the middle of a roundabout though; I saw lots of nearly-accidents because of them. But I hope they never get removed.

The only way to go at the junction is left. It's a roundabout (aka. orbital/circular junction) known as Westferry Circus. If you want a really whacky road junction try looking at http://www.swindonweb.com/life/lifemagi0.htm Strangely, it's actually very intuitive.... if you understand roundabouts.

This roundabout is not actually Westferry Circus - that is the next roundabout along.

Yow, that Swindon roundabout is insane. As if I needed another reason not to go to Swindon...

Just in case you missed it last week, here's another reinterpretation of street furniture

And whilst I'm on the subject, next time you're passing the Royal Academy, look under the entrance on the left and you'll see a wooden version of this icon. One of the architect's prototypes, it's now a listed building - within another listed building.

Serendipity: one of the many rewards of this dense palimpsest of a city.
