I need some inconsistency

An amalgamation of content: the aim not to politicise, but exercise. I'll think aloud about politics, technology, current news, as well as being a gay boy and what that really entails.

Recently in London, some major monuments (including Buckingham palace link) have had seasonal or simply interesting images projected onto their facades.
"Projectors will "wrap" the Palace in a giant Union Jack and also in Christmas wrapping paper.

It is part of the "Brightening Up London" project, backed by celebrities including Bob Geldof.

"The Queen was impressed by Bob Geldof's `Peace and Hope' message projected on to Wellington Arch and gave the go-ahead for the Palace to be lit up," a Palace spokeswoman said.

Nine of London's most famous buildings - including the National Gallery, Imperial War Museum, Tate Britain and the National Theatre - are being illuminated with seasonal images."

I know the even finished a while ago, but I think it was an interesting thing to have done, and something that most could have easily dismissed. I was only reminded of it when browsing this site: http://www.photographyblog.com/ which I somehow stumbled upon today. Much of it is devoted to obvious and uninteresting press releases, but the images shown in the competitions can, at times, be captivating.
