090314 A Quasi-Psittacism

090314bLR A psittacism is ‘The mechanical repetition of previously received ideas or images, without true reasoning or feeling; repetition of words or phrases parrot-fashion; an instance of this’ (OED). Well we’ve all seen pix of Battersea Power Station a quintillion times before. We had a fab day on the Thames shooting for panoramas (although I did sneak in a few side streets as well to get some pix for Bleeding London) and I’ve made this collage of Battersea using mechanical means. However, this is only a quasi-psittacism as it was done with reasoning (fulfilling my word of the day project) , feeling and love.

Day #68 of a 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
