If you have a look at the header image above, that building you see at the upper right won't be standing much longer. The Sir John Carling building housed offices for the Agricultural Ministry for many years, but was vacated some years ago, and at seven AM Sunday morning is scheduled for implosion. I wonder if I'll be awakened by the sound.
This very large sculpture called Maman stands outside the National Gallery. It is of course a spider, and having people in the shots gives it a sense of scale. It is the work of Louise Bourgeois, and is a bronze, one of several copies by the artist at locations around the world.
This last shot takes in the view south, to the Peacekeeper's Monument and the American embassy. The spider looms above everything, of course. We're going to need John Goodman and Jeff Daniels to take care of this one.
