Nice Shot

Who is that man? Why is he sitting in the middle of a stream? Doesn't he know that he could catch a nasty chill if he's not careful? Perhaps he's got a lot on his mind. Perhaps he's wondering how he's going to stop Wayne Rooney on Saturday....that's right! It's none other than Sol Campbell! And this another tenuous (tedious?) Cup Final link!

Actually, it's a quick plug for 'The Other Side Of Football', a free open-air exhibition of professional footballers' photographs taking place next to the London Eye from the 24th May through to the end of July. It looks like a decent collection and well worth a gander, but if you don't fancy a bit of fresh air, you can always check out a selection of the photos here .

Another collection of football photography can be found at the outstanding Offside Bar & Gallery . 'Nights of European Glory' covers 50 years of European Cup Finals and features photos specially selected from the archive of the original competition founders, L'Equipe - the French daily sports newspaper. The exhibition ends on the 29th May and admission is free. Londonist is checking out both bar and gallery over the weekend, so we'll let you know what we think.
