“SDS Security”, Southwark: posh option

“SDS Security” burglar alarms, Southwark • A stormy sky lights up three SDS boxes clad in shiny chrome, which I now know is the expensive option for sounder casings. They’re somewhat too posh for the pitted concrete wall, though the combination is reminiscent of installations by many a contemporary artist, eg Turner Prize nominee Martin Boyce. They look too closely spaced to represent the alarms for three different floors, but that’s the only explanation I can think of for the arrangement. • Spotted: Wild’s Rents, Southwark, London, SE1, England, 2011 • Politics: In the Liberal Democrat constituency of Bermondsey and Old Southwark

  1. The usual reason for oddly positioned boxes (and also TV aerials\satellite dishes\lights etc…) is due to the short ladder syndrome. I have several (bad) pictures of this phenomenon.
