Stratford's in the Pink...

...well all the Olympic signs are.

This is pretty photo heavy so you might want to grab a coffee/tea/glass of wine...
On Friday the weather was pretty awful - high winds - sudden down pours...but the guys securing the drapes on this building just across the road from my office continued with their endeavours.
This was all they managed by the time I set off for home that evening.
Monday morning and the view from the Westfield steps - the tall building in the background is a side view of the one they were draping on Friday.
A quick shot of the entrance to the old shopping mall - surrounded by the 'trees'.
A fuzzy zoom shot of the draped building (the sun really wasn't at the best of angles for these photos).
I told you last week - "if it's still they're hanging something on it" - hanging baskets are appearing all round the place.
The view back towards the station from the new seating area - Robert the engine sits in pride of place proclaiming Stratford's railway history.
Did I mention pink signs?
A closer view of the draped building seen across the bus station - plenty of buses about.
Continuing on my way to work...
...with a bus thrown in for good measure.
Oh look, a pink sign **giggle**
This is the present view of the draped building from my window at work.
They were still tying it down as I left this evening but as you can see - this building is being covered on all sides.

Now my spelling can leave a lot to be desired from time to time but wouldn't you think if you had paid for a load of printed metal sheeting to cover the fencing around a building site you would have checked things like that? Apparently to my office there is due to be a 26 storey building. However, we are beginning to wonder if this is just a fairytale as their sign says "Coming soon to this site - 26 story apartment complex". Hope it has a happy ending.....................................

Oh it's all coming together, do i gather the building they are covering isn't used? Otherwise it's inhabitants are going to feel a bit claustrophobic LOL! Hope you are having a great day - loving the story comment - really!
