What the eye sees the sarcasm comments on
I think it fair to say that I love to people-watch. Those of you whom are fellow twitterers will have seen frequent comments appearing that more often than not are notes on sights and sounds (and smells) around me as I travel to and from work, meander about the office, or take the opportunity to venture outside and see natural daylight.
I therefore am taking advantage of a break in my training schedule (oh, and a day off work) to download some of the photos I have taken recently with my phone during these perambulations. Apologies for the quality which is not always the best, but then again I am also subscribing to the paparazzi school of photography whereby I 'snap and run' before anyone notices.
If you hear headline news of a London business woman being arrested for inappropriate camera behaviour, that'll be me.
Ok, I think this was a case of an Amy Winehouse wannabe that got confused with Ivana Trump. Not sure. You decide. It looked pretty plastic, either way.
Harem-style pants as office attire? Even I know that looks ridiculous.
I just wish I could have caught this on film. Very tall woman, very tight skirt, very high (and very awful) pink shoes. Could not walk to save her life. There was a contingent of people around me watching and just waiting for her to go arse-over-tit. Which she almost did – twice - in the time it took to snap this photo.
Heard the term 'vomit inducing'? I give you 'vomit coloured'. OMG woman, what were you thinking?
Again, apologies about the quality but it is, nevertheless, the Tandem Twins. One day I will get a decent photo of them. I may even ask for permission next time as they have probably also spotted my lurking movements when our paths cross at the tube station.
EVERYTHING they wear/carry/use is exactly identical. From the outfit and hairdo right down to the earrings. Marginally spooky.
Disclaimer: these posts are not meant to offend, they are totally tongue-in-cheek. If you have been captured on film, congratulations, you caught my attention. If this offends you I am truly sorry. A simple email with proof of identity will see you removed tout suite. Just like that.
