A day in London Town

London Town
I do love going to London. For various reasons my wife and i have not been able to visit for a couple of years, so the next best thing is to look at photos from previous visits. This is from Piccadilly Circus looking down Regent Street to the column with the Duke of York perched on top. The Palace of Westminster is in the background. It was a typical London day in 2008 and the light in the sky appealed to me. http://www.thelostphotographer.dk

In a London park

We love London and go there as often as we can. We are long past going to the tourist sights and now enjoy the parks and the London life in general. We visit our favourite restaurants and Cafes and generally watch life go by. We are often there in autumn when red and golden leaves decorate the parks. we enjoy passing the many institutions in Bloomsbury where our usual hotels is situated. I shall use the next few posts on London pictures

Brick Lane

After many times in London we eventually made it to Brick Lane. You need to know its history to really appreciate it. So many people have passed through. It is now mainly dominated by asiatics. Jewish silk weavers once made their living here, but it is said to be moving upmarket and sought after by Yuppies.

Worlds apart

I seldom do it, but today I have posted an earlier image from this blog. I shot it on Baker Street London. When I got home i looked at and noticed the line of people hurrying past the newspaper vendor, as if trying to ignore him. It may not be a very good image, but I like it. I cropped it to accentuate the situation. Before any one mention the lack of focus, permit me to quote "Sharpness is a bourgeois concept" - Henri Cartier-Bresson
