“Spy Alarms”, Westminster: sitting on fossils

“Spy Alarms” burglar alarm, City of Westminster • Here’s a more recent iteration of the Spy design than yesterday’s, a strange and decorative Egyptian-looking eye which is either crying, emitting rays, or has very effective mascara. It’s sited on a strip of marble teeming with the fossils of ancient sea creatures – which is a lot more interesting than the burglar alarm, really. • Spotted: Strutton Ground, City of Westminster, London, SW1, England, 2007 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Cities of London and Westminster
