Random illustrations

As I did not have a ready topic for today’s post (sorry to disappoint, but I don’t feel like I want to explore topics related to either the election or the financial crisis for the foreseeable future), I figured I’ll just post a few random shots made with the new camera today.

Didn’t see it coming, did you?

I took Kimmy to her ballet lesson today. The studio is in Chislehurst, a nearby agreeable village that I only drive through – and that on rare occasions. The little camera gave me a chance to snap a picture of the historic town’s arms prominently displayed on the main road and a house fronted by the seriously displaced reeds. Nothing to brag about, but bear with me while I feel my way around.

And earlier, when I was picking Kimmy from school, I noticed a sign that would surely make me regret not having a camera in the past. Interestingly, I’m sure that the sign has been in this place all along, but I have never noticed it before. I am being more attentive to the space around me already.

The sign is below second-floor windows, good two and a half meters above the ground. It may be important to note that this is a primary school.

What exactly is “anti-climb paint” anyway?

On an unrelated note, I got a postcard from John the Scientist with a view of Singapore’s famous Raffles Hotel. One day, I hope to enjoy a Singapore Sling at its Long Bar, as well. Thanks, John!

    Doesn’t look slippery or even painted in the first place to me. Although, maybe they mean the windowsill. In any case, it’s at a height that you cannot just jump up and pull yourself in. You’ll need a ladder.

    Anti Climb paint is sticky and you can’t climb up to vandalize so much like Graffiti people do. It would also be very difficult for a burglar to climb up and pull themselves through windows. No idea what it’s made out of but I am sure you can Google it.
