Shelter Dilemmas

With a bitterly cold wind cutting your face into shreds whilst waiting at the bus shelter first thing in the morning - it’s not surprising when you feel even colder looking at the advertising that adorns the bus shelters in the run up to the Christmas holiday season.

A double-shot of brandy would do me fine instead - but I have work to go to. And she looks vaguely like someone I know. Reminds me that Imperial Leather do an orange flavour version too.

Bus shelter advertising making me feel cold in the morning.
(Wembley High Road bus stop - advertising Cointreau orange-flavour spirit drink.)

Will always remain totally a teetotaller.!!! Posted by: sat on December 19, 2004 05:09 AM
Cold is it? Shame..... Quite warm here in Goa :) Hope you and the family have a good Xmas! Posted by: nigel & vic on December 19, 2004 10:03 AM
Come to think of it, you're right. But near Temple Meads here, there is an Estee Lauder ad in a bus shelter that kinda heats things up as well. Or was it YSL? never remember the name, but who cares about the brand! Posted by: Anand on December 19, 2004 02:01 PM
What is that painting in the background all about? (Unauthorised posters will be prosecuted). Can you get a photo of it? Posted by: Annette on December 19, 2004 04:04 PM
Sat: good for you! (Although it is said that alcohol in moderation can be good for you in certain circumstances!) Nigel & Vic: Have been following your journal so far - very envious too! Still to take a closer look at all your pictures though. Hope you have a gret Christmas and New Year celebration out there! Anand: I think it's Loreal. I think I know the one you mean. ;-) Annette: you can see more of the pic on the following pages: A view of the same bus stop from a different angle: and you will also get a glimpse of it in my Shockwave montage presentation of CCTV shots at: and also - Brent Council (who commissioned the work from Kamala Arts) have a page on the mural here: Just click on the thumbnails in the above to get a bigger picture. Hope that helps! Posted by: Jag on December 19, 2004 05:19 PM
Even that will not force me to touch alcohol. I even hate the taste of liquor chocolate (I did taste it once - and thats why) Posted by: sat on December 20, 2004 09:42 PM
I've noticed the Cointreau ads as well. I think the one where she's resting her head on her hand should have the words 'bored - but drunk enough to talk to you' Posted by: Rhys Lewis on January 1, 2005 07:19 PM
Sat: I'll have to agree with you on the liquer choc thing - they are enough to put you off alcohol forever. But a cool beer (or two) in the summer is very refreshing! :-) Rhys: I haven't seen that one - but I'll look out for it! That's if they are still up. Perhaps Cointreau is a seasonal thing.
