It’s Wednesday and I have spent the entire day of yesterday talking. I had the kick off even for the next program run yesterday. By the end of the workshop I my voice was basically gone. To be honest I am a bit out of words today. Out of words and out of brain. So I thought I spare us all the talking today and take you on a little photo walk through East London.
I have been to London multiple times but East London has never been up high on my list. I really don’t know why because I think it’s actually my very favorite part of the city now.
Brick Lane Market
I love how just everything however radom it is just fits together in East London. Like all kinds on signs that don’t match but oddly make a great overall picture.
Creativity comes in so many shapes, forms and sizes. Like a guy who sells coffee from a black cab. Or a mural of Marilyn next to a shop that sells costumes. And when you look at the left side of the picture through the window you can spot Marilyn’s famous white dress there, too.
Columbia Road Flower Market
You can buy all kinds of flowers and plants only a few streets away pretty much in a resitential area. There’s also great food and drinks, cute shops and cafes and you can get some of your back to school shopping done there. At leats when you attend Hogwarts. I was tempted!
Street Art in East London
Turn a corner and you can find fantastic street art. Any corner actually.
One on my favorites obviously was the pig. It kinda looked like it worked at this shop.
You can watch all kinds of interesting people in the streets there. East London is as quirky as the people you find there. The fact that is was the weekend before Halloween was probably not the worst for spotting characters either.
And everyone however out of picture they seem at the same time in a strange way belong there.
