Scroll On, Shake Down

This is an interesting one. On the inside of a window on the end of a building, someone has blu-tacked what looks like a piece of Dead Sea Scroll. It has changed the banal reflection of a tree, some car rear lights, and a traffic light into something poised and oddly graphic.

I must get inside the building and see what's on the other side. It seems a casual way to treat what appears to be a section of papyrus.

In this one, someone outside has hurled some milky drink at a window. The double image is not the result of camera shake, but the thickness of the glass that prevented the, um, shake hitting the fan.

And there are those cranes again.

"Scroll" is facinating. Some beautiful colours in there. Such cavalier treatment of antiquities! *grin*

As it's on what looks like a secretary's window, I keep trying to think of a suitable pokerwork-type inscription: you know the sort of thing -- "You don't have to be mad to work here, but it helps" ...

"You don't have to be a Mummy to work here, but it helps" maybe?
