Brick Lane!

This was where I was really inspired.

The arty and grungy environment gets one in the mood for street photography.

Everything seems to fit.

The people and the walls go well together.

Beautiful people, beautiful wall art.

The kids were enjoying the art too.

Lots of cyclists.

A smile and a frown.

Hard at work.

The street art is gorgeous.

Street art is meant to be seen with and by people.

At Brick Lane, the street photographs present themselves one after another.

I can’t click fast enough.

This place is a visual cornucopia.

And I saw this – an exhibition of Singaporean art at Brick Lane.

As it turned out, I bumped into Randy Chan, the curator of the exhibition. I recognized him from a photo in a newspaper report on the exhibition.

More on Singapore: Inside Out in another post.

_MG_6076 640

Funny.

I couldn’t resist a final shot at the entrance of this excellent place.

Thanks for reading!

    It’s a great place isn’t it? Sunday morning when the markets are on is terrific for people and street pictures in Brick Lane. I am so glad you are enjoying your trip to London.

    Enjoyed these! Barcelona and Berlin are excellent for street art too. How long are you in Britain?
