I hadn’t taken any photographs on my camera since January (I’ll tell you about the reasons another time), so last weekend I rectified that by spending a few hours on Brick Lane. I signed up for a City Academy workshop and it was a great springboard back into action: I basically wandered off by myself for a few hours and took as many pictures as I could. I have to admit that there wasn’t as much critique of everyone’s shots as I hoped there would be (I imagined us all returning to Rich Mix to view images on a bigger screen) but I’m glad I gave myself the appointment to get up and do something. Here’s a small (lofi) selection of the shots I took. I’ll hopefully be posting more soon.
Brick Lane is obviously a vibrant hubbub of London life, and a place where it’s impossible to not bump into plenty of colourful characters. I was drawn to people’s hair or really stand-out fabrics most of all, but on reflection I think it’s interesting that there’s something in each of these pictures that reminds me of myself (but whether or not others see that is another matter).
