The Gallery: Street Photography

This week's theme for The Gallery is Street Photography. As soon as I saw the theme, a picture which I took back in August 2008 instantly sprung to mind. It is of a sculpture called Plug and Socket which was designed by James Glancy and is on a 1960's building which forms part of the Carnaby Estate in Soho, London. Ironically this building is actually a sub station that supplies electricity to Windsor castle so the sculpture is very apt indeed.
