    A good attempt.... but it's still a plastic bike ;-)

    I suppose the rather incongruous reflectors on the front wheels are to stop vehicles being driven into them.

    A wall with a view. Yesterday. Well, it's still got a view today, but I was there... oh, you get the idea.

    Thanks, since posting a bike in front of a blank wall early in this thread, this thread is all about the walls to me now^_^.

    I was in Camden this afternoon, and discovered some more good ones:

    Definitely about the walls. Artfully placed bike is good tho. Love the fiery aerosol one for that.

    A couple from the weekend. Shad Thames and BFI.

    There's a huge painted wall under some railway arch off Jamaica Rd I've been meaning to stop at but need the right light (with this dodgy camera phone)

    Some more from today. Shoreditch:
    And these two were out in the wilds of E17, Walthamstow. Some sort of puppet girl, and a homage to Space Invaders.

    That's good isn't it. I saw it on a ride last year and thought it was a bit good for graffiti. You may know already, but its part of a series of art works around Streatham dedicated to famous folk from the area. I posted a link with details of all the others. The only other one I managed to get was the Octopussy one in honour of Roger Moore, all the others were on shutters which were rolled up as the shops were open. Here's the link to my original post with the details if anyone's interested, and some info on another local ledge Cynthia Payne RIP:

    It was a lovely afternoon today and I managed to find a few more.
    I love the sun reflection on the window on this, makes it look like a massive fireball is being fired from the graffiti trumpet.....said nobody before ever^_^

    This is obviously by the same person that did the one in Acton I did on page 31. This one is in Hackney.
    So Mr huge stick man, you must have a good view from up there, can you see any gaps in the clouds? Any chance of any sunshine today?
    Oh, boo.

    I hadn't realised it was part of something bigger (nor the proximity of the house of Payne), thanks for linking your 'ride' post.
    I'd ridden past the tardis a few times before I stopped and realised it was painted on a window shutter, i
    t's clever how the slats integrate into the design.
    Today's walls are near Blackfriars Bridge and off St James Rd
