The last time I posted a similar shot to this one it got a mixed reaction, and I suspect this one will elicit much the same response: it's quite flat, there's no specific subject, and no apparent meaning. Two things drew me to it though. First: I like the history implied in such scenes: the various layers of what was once meaningful material, pealed away to reveal a disjointed collage of unrelated moments in time. Second, and this is a more personal thing: for as long as I can remember I've felt ambivalent about the union flag and the various echoes of colonialism and nationalism with which it's often associated with; neither of which I have much time for.

On a totally unrelated matter, londonrubbish.com is one year old today, so go wish Mark a happy birthday :-)
