The Edge of the A-Z


I'm always up for crazy projects.  The latest I'm partaking in, is to photograph all the streets on the edges of the A-Z.  For non- Londoners the A-Z is a thick volume of street maps that encompasses greater London.  No zone one in this project!  Yikes I seldom venture further than zone two.  However I love a challenge and so I've gone for block 91.  Block 91 is a page in the A-Z that is the border of Greater London and Essex.  It took me 30 minutes by train to get there!

The part of my area south of the river (Thames) encompasses the sewerage plant, cement works and sandwiched in between all the supermarket warehouses.  Something rather bizarre about that.

It's a whole new world out there.  Parked outside the steel supplies were some very elaborate trucks.  Can't you just feel the pride in their vehicles.   Or is that another weird trait I have?
Whatever, the Johnny Cash truck does it for me.

Seems like a big project, nice work on the truck, can never go wrong with some Johnny Cash.

Great project. Let me know if you find any museums on the edge of the A-Z.

I think every city has an area where you'll find those kind of facilities in abundance. Flashy kind of truck... and rather tall, I think.

Love the old Johnny Cash stuff; I see the truck features 'Ring of Fire' - 'Orange Blossom Special' is another great track.
