Chewing Gum in Oxford Street

 Went to town today, Mal wanted to buy some boots and we were to have lunch together. Naturally I took my Nikon with me. Boots bought and too early for lunch M. decided to scour John Lewis for some cushions. I considered the option of an hour in a department store or setting myself a photography project in the rain of Oxford Street. I initially tried shooting umbrellas and also managed a powerful street shot of a severely deformed busker. It was whilst shooting him I was attracted to the glistening discarded gum patterns on the pavement (sidewalk for American readers). I was soon on a mission - below is the resulting 10 image set entitled Oxford Street Gum..... I'd like to thank all those folk who decided to spit rather than swallow!
