Strange red man busker in Chichester just before Christmas.
Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!
“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.

A sign as you enter Pagham.
“Pagham is a coastal village and civil parish in the Arun district of West Sussex, England, with a population of around 5,500.” (Wikipedia)
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:
Thanks for following, everyone! Stay tuned for more random shots of England in 2012! 🙂
