My Mum and I went down to Southampton for a spot of retail therapy today and on our way home we took a short detour via the docks in search of today's photo. There were vast numbers of these shipping containers piled up and I like the patchwork effect their colours create. I understand the BBC have marked a container like one of these with their logo and are tracking its journey round the world for a year using a GPS transmitter. The container started its trip from this very dock on 9th September so this seems particularly timely posting. For more information about the BBC container visit http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_depth/business/2008/the_box/default.stm [null]- apparently it's currently in Shanghai.
