Another brief interlude...

Wandsworth Common, 08/02/07

On the way to work, just after taking this picture, a strange thing happened; the bus driver got out of his cab and asked us (the passengers) to look over to our left as there was a giant snowball on the Common that kids had pushed around until it got bigger and bigger. He'd noticed it getting built earlier that morning and wanted to point it out to us, there was a murmur of laughter as we saw the snowball; a lady was taking a photo of her kids standing behind it as the bus passed. I thought of playing in the snow as a child and also how refreshing it was for a stranger to address me on public transport and the moment not to be fraught with danger or weirdness.
