'Ello...'ello...'ello...

...what's going on 'ere then?

Proof that we have police in Stratford.
This week has seen them out in force - dotted around the station, in the shopping malls - just about everywhere in Stratford (normally we only see Community Police). This pair were very obliging and let folk take snaps (a family had just taken some pics and one of the officers let 'dad' wear his helmet for the shot). So a perfect opportunity to prove to you all that we do have police.

The down side to this was that they insisted on taking a pic with me in it...now you all know that I avoid the front of the camera at all costs but...
...my Mum told me never to argue with a policeman LOL
Now a bus station is obviously a place where you are going to see buses - right? Well, the increased timetable means that there is a continuous mass of red there all day long...we've never seen so many buses in there at any one time. You might have noticed the tall building on the skyline...that is an appartment block called the "Stratford Eye". If seen from above the shape would be very much like the shape of an eye but also it has unobstructed views out towards the Lee Valley and of course the Olympic park.

The calm before the storm...
...not many people about but you can see barriers being lined up to the right of the pic ready to control the crowds arriving for the Opening Event dress rehearsal.

Oh and he's the proof that even big construction companies can't spell...
...just another thing that has gone wrong with this development. I can't say that I'm looking forward to this being built as it will completely block the view towards the station and will make it very dark in our office...at least we will still be able to see the Orbit and the 'rhubarb'..................................................

Great photos. I love the spelling one! I saw a fab one in a public toilet recently that said 'If you have any issue's with our toilets please let us know.' I have a real issue with misplaced apostrophes but we won't go there! jenx

A lovely post Toni and great to see a pic of you too. I like to be able to put a face to the name.

Enjoy your time off and I hope you survive the Olympic onslaught without too much distress.
