The Street Furniture Series - Part 1

~ ~
As you walk or drive down London's streets, do you ever notice the furniture that makes it unique? Does the furniture invite you to sit or linger? Does it merge so well with the street landscape that you hardly notice it's there? Or does it stand out on its own so well that it makes an ordinary street a little less ordinary?

This is the first in a periodic series of street furniture that I've noticed, liked, disliked, found inspiring, interesting - or perhaps almost missed.

Fabulous photography. Enchanted by numerous moods created through photographs - each one has a different feel. Really looking forward to catching more of the same.

i loved the colorful one on Wenlock Basin, Regents Canal and the superb view of the Kingly Court's one!!! keep up the b/w one's. they really add a typical "british charm"!!
great aesthetic sense shilpa! so can i develop it too or is it a natural talent? ;-)

Thanks so much Geetu!:)

As for aesthetic sense and creativity, I firmly believe we all have our own way of seeing things and it is up to us how to use and/or enhance it. :)
