Ship of Fools

Ship Adrift, Ship of Fools - Paul McCarthy

Ship Adrift, Ship of Fools” by Paul McCarthy in St James’s Square, London. “The massive new sculpture is a contemporary rephrasing of a medieval allegory, depicting a world of power without principle as the ship and its denizens hurtle obliviously towards their own destruction.” (Source)

On view until 15 February 2012.

Pagham Pram Race

In Pagham there is a curious Boxing Day tradition – the Pagham Pram Race. Basically, the entrants dress up in fancy dress costumes and race between three pubs over about three miles, while pushing a pram with at least one of their team riding in it. They all have to drink a pint at each of the three village pubs. The race raises money for local charities.

Here are some shots from today’s race:
