Silly Tuesday cock-eyed column.

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 3 September 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Trafalgar Square in London showing the fourth plinth's giant blue cock, the London Eye, and a slightly less than vertical Nelson's Column. All sitting in the same frame and conspiring to produce a pretty silly title for a Tuesday picture :-)

Ol' Nelson sure has seen some changes over the years but he is slow to complain about it.

Cock is handsome bird. I guess it's the world's oldest clock. There's always woken up to work at the time of cock-crow.
