Life in the fast lane – there’s always one!
Life can move at a very fast pace in London and most Londoners have seen everything which is why no-one in central London bats an eyelid at photographers, film crews, people dressed in funny costumes and even red buses that do press ups.
I’ve been meaning to put up this photo for a while. This big red bus was outside the Czech delegation’s HQ for the Olympics in Islington. Designed by Czech artist, David Cerny, it’s hydraulic arms really did push it up and down and it breathed! I think it was supposed to show us that we all need to exercise. It was something of an attraction during the Olympics – my niece wanted to make a special trip to see it after seeing it on the internet – but as always with London, there were those who just glanced at it and walked on, treating it as just another part of the scenery.
