Giant telescope connecting London and New York, near Tower Bridge

photos by Vedran

"When the sun illuminated the lens of the Telectroscope next to the Thames, it was, of course, still nighttime in New York. So the screen inside the scope broadcast back only an empty sidewalk silently framed by the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline.

But then something miraculous occurred.

A police officer and a street cleaner walked into the frame. Stopped. And waved.

The Telectroscope will be on display and open to the public 24 hours a day in London and New York until June 15. Artichoke is arranging requests to synchronize special reunions between friends and family or, the company hopes, maybe even a marriage proposal."

Miss Potter's Place

Old Brompton Road, SW5

"Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality." - Beatrix Potter

Funny thing is, the wall bearing this plaque now belongs to the Bousfield Primary School...

Banksy's CCTV Nation

Banksy's latest and the biggest work in London so far - his response to the "Big Brother" society that this city has become.

But, oh the irony! Neither the CCTV camera, nor the 24-hours security officer at the Post Office depot spotted a 3 storey scaffold being erected in their yard for 2 days, hiding the elusive artist behind a polythene sheet.

So, are we increasingly being watched or ignored as much as possible?

Waiting for the train, I noticed what seemed like a very important information just above the Platform 1 sign. On closer inspection...

Funny or feckless?
