London’s East End is a vibrant, artistic and chaotic place to be on a Friday night out… This is a snapshot of some of the richness.
I love tattoos and this guy had plenty of them. Very approachable and friendly. His most favourite body ink was this picture from Tom of Finland.
There’s something reassuring and fascinating about the old and new in contrast with each other. From one corner in Covent Garden and this amazing and chirpy Pearly Queen to the outskirts of Soho and this tattooed fella with his pint. Both very British and very London. Fantastic mix.
On the move from South to North London I got this great capture of Lettering by the entrance to the former Blackfriars Road station in London.
The station was opened in 1864 and closed almost five years later in 1868 when it was replaced by the station now called Waterloo East. 24th November 2011.
It’s been a black and white day today. I like the grit of how London and especially Soho looks in mono. Tomorrow will be a day of colour vibrancy through work but in life you need to balance things out don’t you…
“Don’t criticize what you don’t understand, son. You never walked in that man’s shoes.”

Actually you can…..in another man’s shoe’s or even a cool 1950′s suit, at this retro fair on the South Bank.
