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.
❤️❤️❤️ Love the places, love the photos. Brick lane in particular is one of my favourite places to wonder and hunt out street art – you want to look down every nook! Same goes for Camden market.
Thanks my dear! I am definitely a Brick Lane > Camden Market person but I know what you mean. You’re never done watching. And as the average piece of street art has a life span of 6 months it will look differently every time you go. It’s fantastic!
I love looking at pictures. You and Lucie do such an amazing job of capturing a scene.
Also the jacket on the one woman is phenomenal. Seriously I want that.
Thank you sweetheart! Me too. Street photography fascinates me. You get a glimps of how someone else sees the world.
The women and her whole outfit were phantastic. I was so glad I could snap a picture!
