there are a load of 10 foot high gibson guitars on the southbank near city hall and the tower of london (and tower bridge). they are very smart. go and see them

the guitar in the cage is signed by bruce dickinson – obviously too dangerous to leave roaming like the others
they are ten feet tall

the photo at the top was an attempt to use fill-in flash with a teeny weeny aperture to get the sun effect. not sure if it worked. i’d forgotten my remote trigger otherwise i could have had even more fun
