Through the East End Streets

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 you Selfridges

#Selfridges has to be one of the most inspirational retail spaces on the planet, especially if you’re a creative. From the window displays to the retail displays inside, they’ve got retail experience down to a tee and it’s constantly changing and catching the consumers eye.

Wood and Brick

Bakery IslingtonThis lovely bakery in #Islington http://blog.euphoriumbakery.com/ is a great place to pass some time and watch an eclectic mix of North Londoners. The decor is great too.

Magic and realism

Micky MouseThis is a scene from the gritty and vibrant Brick Lane in the East End. It’s a mixture of realism and fantasy, from bog rolls and phones to Fantasia. There’s tons of graffiti around this area and it’s worth a tour of all the side streets to find it. Check out http://www.ldngraffiti.co.uk/index.html for a great guide all London graffiti sites.

Westfield Stratfordcity too

Westfield fashion

This shot was taken in summer 2011 in Regents Park. As today felt bloody freezing in London, I can only dream and wish for a bit of summer madness to kick in as quickly as possible!
