Anything but pedestrian

  • Comment
Christopher Seddon is a bit of a polymath as you might divine from his blog 's title Sid's Knowledge Emporium: 'everything you ever wanted to know about just about anything'.

No surprise then that the site is a tad promiscuous in content, but there's quite a lot of musing about our favourite subject. We get a photo of Senate House (University of London) which though not exactly a scene from Canaletto as advertised, is bathed in an unusual golden glow. In the October filings is a piece about Tempelhof airport, the Berlin TV tower, Sun Houses at Amersham and a study of the concrete cores of the St Giles Court development, their heads wrapped in scaffolding canvas.

But the story I liked most is for all you cyclists out there which contains these eternal truths: 'When crossing a road [as a pedestrian] I have to bear in mind that at pedestrian crossings, the green man does not confer right of way over cyclists; “No Entry” signs do not apply to cyclists; and of course red lights certainly do not apply to cyclists’.
