It’s time again for Frizztext’s A to Z Challenge, this week it’s X. From my travels, X could be for…..well, I couldn’t think of a single place…… Oh dear!
But a bit of thinking had me make a detour during my trip to London yesterday over to Oxford Circus’s X Crossing, at the busy junction of Oxford Street and Regent Street. Phew, job done!
The X Cross is a pedestrian crossing that allows people to cross the road diagonally as well as straight across. It’s great to see in action….all the traffic stops for a short while, people cross the road from all directions in a mad scramble, then the lights for the pedestrians turn red again, and traffic mayhem starts again! A slice of street life…
It really needs to be seen from above to get the full effect of the place, but no time to find out how to do that yesterday.
So here is my best snapshot impression, using an old Canon point and shoot:
Why not see what other interpretations of ‘X’ have been made here.
