It’s been AGES since I last posted about Slough. Which for those who don’t know has been the most exciting town in the UK for quite some time now. Unfortunately I only work here, so I only really get to experience the place properly during the occasional lunch break etc. And so, on a lunch-break yesterday I took a walk into the town centre from my office on a mission to buy a cheap telephone “splitter” from the local “pound shop”. But whilst I was out I realised how bright and sunny it was. In total contrast to the few hours earlier when miserable dark clouds unleashed heavy rains on the place.
(A kind of surreal picture taken with my cameraphone.)
There is something very weird about this photo. It looks like a computer-generated image from a scene in computer simulator game or something similar …
I think it’s a combination of the blue sky, the tiled floor, the over-saturated colours of the Nokia N95 cameraphone, and the bloke with a mobile phone who looks dressed like an avatar floating a few centimetres above the ground – a la Second Life. Strange.
