    River Thames as art...

    "The Illuminated River will be a long term art commission on an unprecedented scale: a scheme to light central Londonís bridges along the River Thames"...link

    I think the bridges are pretty lovely without special lighting, but it'll be interesting to see how this works.

    Part of me wonders how London can afford to do this when there are so many funding challenges across the city, for so many worthy causes. The other part of me loves the idea. I enjoyed reading about the bridges on that site.

    'London' may only have to stump up a share of the cost. The sites list the owners as Tfl (3), Network Rail (4), two of London's richest boroughs (4) and Bridge House Estates (5). Wiki tells us that "The Bridge House Estates is a charitable trust, established in 1282" and has a section about their finances (link).


    Part of me says 'I like things as they are...so why?' Another part says 'Wait and see. You'll probably like it in the end...you've been wrong before.'
