Nose for You

I've been described as someone with an eye for the beautiful and the bizarre. Today I'm living up to the bizarre.
You wont find this in your tourist books.
The nose on the arch of Trafalgar square is said to be that of the Duke of Wellington. Placed at just the right height for horse riders to touch for good luck as they ride past.

Wait until I find the eye and ear!

And if you want more noses, it might be worth researching "the seven noses of Soho".

Bizarre indeed! I wonder how many people know that?

Excellent thank you!

Anna said...

Bizarre and funny. Great combo.

I'm going with 80% beautiful and only 20% bizarre. The nose, of course, is the bizarre. But I think the overall close-up, with its blocks and curves and textures, is beautiful.

I've never seen this before! I love it when you find these unusual things.

Cool! I kept seeing coloured hands around London when I was there about a year ago - never could find out what they were all about.

The Duke sure had one big and ugly nose.

I remember the first time I searched for the nose, it took me ages to locate it.
