The anonymous aliens release their messages for all humanity.

Well, that was last night the 5th November.

Screenshot of Twitter last night, 5th November 2014, following the Million Mask March in London which attempted to protest at the Houses of Parliament, Westminster.

Protesting in London on the way to the Houses of Parliament, rowdy, serious and in the end a little violent, but in reality it’s still business as usual despite the banking crash and the supposed, virtual meltdown of capitalism! And, back in the very, very ordinary world where I live the local council had a predictable, rather safe family affair ‘fireworks display’ in the community park opposite my street. Only, the tickets were too expensive for many families and so they came and parked down my road and the children stood on the pavement trying to see over the row of houses between them and the park.

Finale-I

Finale-II-burst

I think I'd prefer a visit from some anonymous aliens perhaps a few blue-sky thinking economists??

  1. How awful that the Council charged for a fireworks display! This post is such an interesting blend of the political and the artistic. Nice nighttime pics – something I can’t master.

    1. I’ve changed my lens since I took the London New Year’s fireworks and my new lens was very awkward in the low light levels – I was lucky to get anything remotely useable from this shortish display. Not sure why the Council charged maybe to cover all the safety protocols and insurance?

  2. I’ve never heard of a council charging for a firework display – as you say, despite the financial crash, capitalism still reigns supreme it seems. You had me fooled with your first couple of photographs, for a moment I thought they really were aliens, or at least, some amoeba type being.

    1. Aliens mmm, was me struggling with my new lens that was not easy to handle in the cold and drizzle under an umbrella. I’ve read Australia hasn’t been so badly hit by the financial crisis, but here, as you might have noticed on your visits, it’s still all about cuts and austerity. That is nationally and very much locally too.
