I was searching for a a favorite image of a coffee cup, or just a good image of one of those paper cups of coffee, the kind of coffee that costs about three buck, maybe more? Couldn’t find it.

The digital archive did cough up a familiar image of Big Ben. On a cloudy day. No idea when it was, I take that back, I do have an idea of when it was, but the details seem irrelevant at this moment. I just wanted a Friday placeholder, and Big Ben is as good as any. Reminds of winter nights, and cold, damp weather.

I’m pretty sure it’s a cropped photo, and the raw footage was shot just emerging from the sub station (Westminster) across the street from the Houses of Parliament. That’s a guess with no further digging and rummaging.

Very unrelated:
Special note to Sister:
That phone ring tone you heard and liked? It’s here: “loonring.”

Notes on usage: import mp3 file into iTunes then fiddle to make it the phone ring on your iPhone.

You can figure it out.

    We expect gray skies over London, and often. Yet the spire of Big Ben, although gray also, the clock tower aims high into heaven. A natural and impressive look. Cropped or not…

    Now I understand why they are called “loons”.
