Urban Bling

I've had to venture into my archives today as it's been a hectic week and I've not really made any photographs I feel are good enough to share. However after a quick trawl through some folders I found the above image that I'd forgotten about. 

I have photographed this post several times but this is my favourite version. I'm not sure why, but it always catches my attention. I love the urban/ suburban as anyone who has dipped into my blog will have observed and often find plenty of interest within walking distance of my front door. It may be the tendency for some people to go a bit grand with their front gardens that attracts me, and this is a proper bit of road-side bling.
