The Pyramid From Pinner

A couple of Christmases ago now, Shelley and I saw this man (the one in the background) riding the tube from Baker St station.

We snapped a covert picture of him and posted a story, Power of the Pyramid. Since then, the story has attracted somewhat of a groundswell of attention. Six random readers (yes, six!) have spotted Pyramid Man across London, and have documented his whereabouts in their comments. Here they are:

I saw this bloke yesterday at Baker St! He got on the southbound Jubilee Line at about 4pm. I snapped a photo of him too, but it's nowhere near as good as yours. Well done!

I saw this guy on the tube yesterday too, he got off the Bakerloo line at Baker Street.... I had to Google him, was sure other would be talking about him on the net.

This chap lives in Pinner, he is quite often sitting in the window of Cafe Nero scribbling with a mystical looking pen...

Ha ha. My sister and I saw this guy going up the escalator at the Picadilly station. We had a bit of a laugh riot and decided to Google up pyramid-wearing people in the UK and found your page. :D

Spotted pyramid man in Pret, Covent Garden, drawing satanic images in his notepad..

I thought the Pyramid was a lampshade.

Anybody ask him if he has got a light ?

Although it's been a couple of years since you so subtly yet clearly documented the existence of the individual we like to call 'triangle man' as you can see, this chap just keeps on giving the gift of mystery. As I don't commute from Pinner, I've been puzzled by two friends and their strange descriptions and reported sightings until this evening. We've been delighted to discover there is a suitably eccentric explanation - Many Thanks! Katy, Claire and Naureen Pinner

So, I think it is fair to say that Pyramid Man probably commutes to London from Pinner. But where does he go when he gets to London? Baker St, Piccadilly Circus and Covent Garden. Let's look at those points on a map, shall we?

That's right; an ominous triangulation has descended upon the West End.
