Strawberry thief by boxplayer

Strawberry thief

Came across this unusual installation on my post-work walk this evening. Based on William Morris's strawberry thief.

Despite early start, finished gone 4 so decided not to go straight out for a walk as I was losing the light anyway. Prepared the halloumi peppers and homemade oven chips first. So left for a walk around the block in the dark.

It started eventfully. I approached the bus stop in Forest Road which is on a very narrow strip of pavement as there's a cycle track next to it. So it's often a bit of a squeeze getting past people waiting for the bus. I could see there were a couple of people there and I approached the gap between them. As I passed I realised the one on the right by the wall was having a piss. How lovely. I was more shocked by the fact that I'd almost walked into his stream - so I exclaimed 'Oh my god'! As I passed and moved on, I could hear a stream of invective following me down the road along the lines of 'suck my ...' What a c***.

All less eventful after that - came across a new ghost sign, unveiled by the removal of a billboard. Not sure how long it will be there - hope I can get back to it in the daylight. And this light installation.

Home to halloumi peppers and an episode of Winter Walks with the Rev Richard Coles.

Very pretty. Just the sort of thing we need to come across at the moment.
