On first view I almost thought this was mine, but yours is much better exposed.

(dont want to clutter the thread with unrelated pictures, mine is in https://c7.alamy.com/comp/F6TA43/futuristic-tunnel-in-london-bridge-tube-station-F6TA43.jpg)

I saw you keyworded as Piccadilly Circus Tube, I believe this may actually be London Bridge. 

Yes, you are right it is from London Bridge. Thanks.

HA great theme this month, here's my three:

 

2A90MJ3.jpg

The Hotel Goričina, one of five derelict hotels at Kupari Bay, Croatia, commonly known as The Bay of Abandoned Hotels. Just 10km from Dubrovnik the difference between the two resorts couldn't be starker. The bay was formerly an upmarket hotel and villa complex for the Yugoslavian military elite and their families. The same people destroyed and looted the hotels during the Yugoslav Wars which took place between March 1991 and November 1995. It seems strange but It's a great place to visit, away from the maddening crowds in Dubrovnik.

A Police Officer holding a handful of used Nitrous Oxide or Laughing Gas whippets which is regularly used as a recreational drug. I heard the term 'doing balloons' in work, a few months back, and had no idea what the that meant, until one of the youngsters, I work with, put me straight. Apparently the gas is normally emptied, from the whippet, into a balloon before being inhaled.

Empty polystyrene box left in the forest by moss gatherers. The box will probably still be there in thousands of years.

OMG How sad is that. It was a bit of a shock to me personally simply because of the teddies being included.
