strings down holes

as regular readers will know, london was once a pine forest on a mountain.
however, did you also know that the new London actually floats on the thames ? here are some of the tethering ropes which go down through the ground and pop out in to the thames where they are anchored.
it’s quite common to see these ropes protruding from the street as they wear themselves lose by the bobbing movements.
