Building blocks

Portobello Road Market, London

In my travels, I am always interested in buildings and architectural styles. The monuments that men erect are sometimes fanciful, sometimes puzzling. Good and bad, they make you stop and wonder about the thought behind the building, or the decorative touches.

I saw this odd sculpture on a building on Portobello Road in London. Yes those are infants and starfish!

Imagination and building materials can create some amazing things, and some that make you scratch your head and say "huh?".

All in all, it is fun to ponder and to photograph.

  2. Why did the starfish and infants make me think of Michael Jackson? Huh?
