    Fantastic post! Definitely made me smile. Love Spitafields, Bethnal Green and Whitechapel and all it’s ethnic diversity. it’s where you can find bagels, mexican food and curries all in one place!

    Great pics, they make me want to go home to England and stuff my face with cake 🙂 I have the Beetle and the wild boar here, it’s a good start….. But the wild boar digs holes everywhere at night, and I prefer it in paint than bumping into the real thing!

      Thanks! The cake was divine! 🙂 Yes I think I’d prefer the boar in paint to bumping into the real thing at night! Especially if you have to navigate with caution for fear of breaking a leg down a hole! 🙂

    Great photos. I love that part of London (my partner used to work at QMC). Will have to make a pilgrimage out there when I’m in London in September!

Quotes that speak to my soul…

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.
What you have caught on film is captured forever...
it remembers little things,
long after you have forgotten everything." - Aaron Siskind

"You become things, you become an atmosphere, and if you become it, which means you incorporate it within you, you can also give it back. You can put this feeling into a picture. A painter can do it. And a musician can do it and I think a photographer can do that too and that I would call the dreaming with open eyes." - Ernst Haas

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by Dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
- Steve Jobs

“To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”
- Henri Cartier-Bresson

“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.”
― Henri Cartier-Bresson

“Above all, life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference”
― Robert Frank
