What the eye sees... back by popular demand

Goodness, how long since the last episode? As the photographic ventures via the old mode of transport are now fewer and far between, it has taken some time to pull this one together. However, not being one to shirk off responsibilities, I thought it only dutiful of me to finally download these specimens for another installment.

So without further ado, I give you the following delightful samples of commuter oddities in and around London.


First up, we have the odd couple threesome: her, him, and the hat.

It's me or the big cat, okay? Your call miaow

Then there was the commuter whose legs were so bright they startled fellow passengers,

Are those legal? Do I dial the transport police?
Anyone here have their number?
And the fellow who got carried away with knitting ski-wear patterns and decided to incorporate trousers into his repertoire.

This is what itchy looks like

The business woman sporting a purple mohawk (very blurry photo but I had to run after her to snap this, much to the consternation of my colleagues who clearly marked me as 'bonkers' hereafter)

Surely you cannot be serious?

And the lady who overdid the Argyle 'look' but more importantly failed spectacularly to coordinate her shoes after all that effort. Black and red and white and... uhmm... purple?

I got dressed in the dark dah-ling, okay?
The woman who loved her shaggy dog so much she turned it into a jacket (possibly related to the woman wearing her cat on her head of the last related post?)

Is it? Is it?
It's a dog's life *sigh*

And finally this one. The gnome's hat doubling up as a hairband. Honestly, I thought she was stalking me, everywhere I turned on the tube it was right in front of me.
Oh. Hang on. Stalkers are normally behind you... hmmm...

I auditioned for 'Gnomeo and Juliet' but did not get the part

But I got to keep the prop

And I am going to wear it everywhere. Always. So there.
P.S. No work colleagues have been a) photographed, b) mentioned, or c) ridiculed in this post.
I think.

Yadda yadda yadda...
