One four two

I guess some of you are thinking, the numbering system surely should be 1,2,3, etc; so what’s 1,4,2 mean? The answer is – I don’t know. Haven’t a clue.

This was on the exterior of a building in central London and probably I will be unable  to find it again to attempt to understand its significance.

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

  1. Another wonderful window succumbs to your masterful compositional skill. Nicely done, Andy.

    Building address, maybe? More likey a photo op for some observant photographer.

    Nothing like a mystery, Andy!

    Easy. It’s a humorous reversal of the traditional two-for-one sale.

    I never want to know the significance of the 142!

    What a wonderful “catch”! Isn’t it fun to happen upon an enigmatic scene like this one? Whether we ever figure out its meaning or not, it’s a good reminder to pause for just a moment and SEE. Great image, Andy!

      Life is full of surprises isn’t it. One of the traits that has always served me well is curiosity. Taking the back streets rather than the main streets, going round the back of buildings. Finding the oddities, sometimes the unintended humour, and the unexpected.

      • Heide says:

        Curiosity is more important for the creative person than any other trait, I think — including talent and skill. (Lucky for you, though, you have all of the above. 🙂 )
