What the eye sees.... Take two

Ready? Right, here we go. Oh the joys of London town and the daily commute.

Is it obvious that this woman is wearing a rather short skirt and appears to have forgotten basic etiquette about keeping your legs together when seated? Strange man in specs also adds to the allure.

Long day at work? Yes. Tired? Yes. Uhmm, sorry, why are you wearing your husband's shoes?

It's the man in black: black suit, black shirt, black tie, black socks, black shoes. And not a funeral parlour in sight. Played manically on his iPod non-stop for twenty minutes, much to the disgust of his neighbour. Check out the sneer!

OMG! Miss, miss! Your legs are being attacked by giant moths! Oh, sorry, fancy tights only.
As you were.

And this lady could not resist the fake turquoise plastic flower she saw in the loos of the local cafe. Choice. Matched the eyeshadow but I could not quite manage to photograph that without being obvious.

And this WAG went AWOL. Thought she was en route to Sarf Afeeka, innit, but then realised the tube line did not go quite the distance. Bit like some of the football teams (ahem).

This is what I call the 'boobs as bum' phenomena. I just don't get it. And this is a pretty tame photo. Tara knows what I am talking about (Tara, back me up here before I come across as a total pervert).

And last but not least, it is - drum roll please - the Tandem Twins again. Complete with matching outfits of course. I must get round to introducing myself before they catch on and have me arrested. Although Expat Mum did offer to pass round the tin for collecting my bail money...

  Over to you viewers - comments welcome. Don't be shy now.

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.


  1. Oh so the Tandems aren't in a uniform after all! (Unless there's been a corporate redesign since last week...) So what on earth is up with them?

  2. You've almost made me miss the tube! Must try and repay the compliment on Singapore's MRT mainly featuring the freaky long toenail fashion that it now all the rage!

  3. No idea what is going on with my comments - that's what happens when you try to be clever and change format!

    Hampshireflyer - you are correct, not uniforms at all, just bizarre mirror-image dressing for middle-aged women.

    Mud - go on! Sounds incredible... and very amusing.

  4. ha ha ha ha, wonderful! those twins are freaky, do you think they go every where and do everything together as well? Sorry, you're going to have to explain the boobs as bum thing though...

  5. Hilarious! What happens to those women if one of them spills something down her front during the day? Do you think they carry a spare set of identical everything just in case?

  6. Heather - I blame Tara. I thought it was just me who was aware of business women wearing very low-cut tops with boobs squished (akin to bum crack) and hanging in your face. Her recent trip to Florida showed the phenomena exists 'over the pond' as well. Photo was just to prove a point. Enough!

    Christine - I think they would ensure spillage also occurred in tandem. Would you believe me if I told you I have spotted them carrying matching takeaway Starbucks coffee cups? Exactly.

    Angel - very. Spooky.

  7. Continuously wipe your glasses with a delicate fabric, not a paper towel. It might be advantageous to consider solidness while choosing outlines in the event that you have a tendency to be no picnic for glasses.eye doctor in washington dc
