A London photo every day. Some pictures will be there for their own sake, some because they are places you may like to see, all because they are part of what makes London what it is. Requests welcome!

Comments on "London Bricks"
I love the expression on that face! Is this on a particular building? I feel like I've seen it before...
I saw some sculpture in brick recently in Newport, South Wales (over the road from the train station - so the sculpture was of a train, unsurprisingly).
Olive, I think it is because it is of Old Man Neptune - a common figure in London This is another place you can find him - there are many others.Jackie - It's surprising brick isn't used more frequently, but I don't think I've seen stocks being used like this (they would normally be considered too soft, I suppose)
I don't think I have ever seen brick work quite like this before.
