London just hasn't been weird enough of late. So we're bringing back Touch Up London, a selection of postcards from an alternate reality London. We'll kick off the series again from next week. In the meantime here are a few favourites from the past four years.

We want your images of a twisted London. You don't even need Photoshop anymore. Free web-based software such as SUMO Paint lets you add and subtract, bend and warp, and otherwise tamper with your own photos of the capital. So get creative and send entries to londonist - at - gmail.com
