010814 Moby Dick

I thought this bit of urban dilapidation was rather “Moby Dick”: ‘the great white whale central to Herman Melville’s novel, esp. in being very large, important, or impressive’ (OED). Ok, it’s not particularly large, important or impressive, but the texture and colours are not dissimilar to the blue whale in the Natural History Museum.

Day #210 of a 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
