Lonely in London
I flew to London directly from Burning Man. I was tired, dirty, very tired, and very dirty. But that didn't stop me from adventuring out! It was still a bit before my friend Scott arrived, and still many days before my wife and others arrived... so I spent some time wandering the London streets at night. You never know when the muse is gonna visit, so you have to go out and wander when she does!
These red phone booths are perfect little specimen for photography, no? I'm trying to remember the first time I ever saw one. It was probably when I was a kid, watching Monty Python with my dad on PBS. Speaking of that, I recently listened to the Michael Palin autobiography on Audible (try them out - I love Audible!). I didn't realize the show was kind of floundering in the UK when it really hit big in the US. It sounds like the whole crew was surprised how popular the show was in America. All I can imagine is that their behavior must have just seemed perfectly mundane and normal in England.
