LSW Oxford Street and Soho, London

I haven't had much time over the last few months to get to London for a street walk. I felt a little out of practice and found it difficult to get into the rhythm of it all. I started at Tottenham Court Road Underground station and walked up Oxford Street to Bond Street. I crossed over and double backed to Regents Street and walked around Carnaby Street before heading over to Chinatown and Piccadilly. After coffee in the Picturehouse Central I walked back to Oxford Street and up Regents Street to Regents Park Underground Station. 

Oxford Street and the central shopping district of London is a ideal place to hang out and find interesting viewpoints and people to photograph. 

Leadenhall Market and Lloyds of London

In London attending a comedy show, this afternoon. While there, I thought I would spend a few hours prior to the gig wandering the streets of the financial district around Lime Street. Leadenhall Market is over 100 years old and looks absolutely beautiful. I think it was the inspiration for the Harry Potter's 'Diagon Alley' styling and atmosphere. I wish there were more places like this is London.

Midnight commuting

I don't travel on public transport at night very often. However, there is a eery sense of loneliness standing on platforms alone waiting for trains. I normally travel during the day and I'm normally stood with thousands of people cluttering my view of the world. Shooting at night brings an element of calm, method approach to photography. Simple lines go on forever in the harsh light. Actually, I find it easier to spot patterns and shapes when I'm not busying myself with daily punctuality.
