A cool Chelsea shop specializing in decorative plaster.
A diner at Dallas Barbecue does that thing where you push your arm skin up to make yourself look muscley.

This photo is from London, actually. It's George Passmore, half of art duo Gilbert and George. His behaviour was most unusual: he lurked outside a newsagent, then stole their newspaper headline poster and walked off with it! Maybe it will show up in their future work.

One of Gilbert and George's distinctive artworks.
