|Russell Square WC1...|
Whilst driving past the north entrance of Russell Square WC1 the other day I noticed this rather pleasant looking bollard. It happens to be circular based with a tapering body that leads to a near full shaped ball top. Just under half way up the body we see what looks like a wedding band/ring especially due to the fact it is painted gold. Another smaller sized band is placed just under the top.
Russell Square has gone under a transformation over the last 18 months and the local council Camden should be congratulated for creating a better environment for people/cyclists and motorists, it's not often this happens in a city the size of London.
London has a rather large amount of street furniture and the next post on this blog/site will celebrate the fact I've reached the 250th post even though the majority of the bollards have only been found right in the heart of London.
Out of the blue I was sent yet another excellent photograph (below) by @clareangela on the twitter and I simply could not resist putting this picture of a bright green but very 'bog' standard looking bollard up. Look at the pavement and then if we can admire that chunk of bricks just sitting there waiting to be reunited with the rest of the wall. Another very arty example of #boll-art and certainly a brilliant #guestbollard.

My final #guestbollard has been featured over on my other blog/site 'Bollards of Britain' and what a fine ornate dandy bollard this is to so may I take this opportunity to thank @kenhurst on the twitter for this simply wonderful picture of a Norwich City Council bollard.
