Brick Lane: Revisited #1!

I love visiting Brick Lane in London, not only for the variety of vintage clothes shops, the wonderfully quirky and diverse people and the best hot salt beef bagels, washed down with my favourite dirty chai coffee… but also for the street art that changes or is added to on a regular basis… I could never be bored, there’s always so much to draw the eye and keep that camera shutter clicking!  

So much so that I took far too many shots for one post!  I couldn’t decide which to use and which to ditch so I’m going to spread them out through a few posts over the next two or three days!

Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!  More to follow…

    You have a steely eye for detail! I didn’t even notice the giraffe! Wonderful choices for the first foray; and the others – if memory serves – will be just as good. Good luck finding time; will wait with baited breath!! Molto bene bella!! Ciao ciao! xx

    When traveling, or at home, street art is always something that captures my eye.

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
