Another Evening In Hoxton

Last night I stayed out late again after work and enjoyed another photowalk around Hoxton with a friend from GNPC.

I found another image for my [email protected] project, #42. Here are the other pictures I made during the walk:

The Walk To Work

I’ve spent most of August and September working in Clerkenwell. That has meant a walk from Liverpool Street to Great Sutton Street twice a day. I tried to vary my route as much as possible as there are plenty of ways to get from one to the other. This has given me some great opportunities for picture making in the Barbican, Whitecross Street Market, Bunhill Fields and Old Street.

Here’s a set of some of the best location shots I’ve taken over the past couple of months:

Street Wise

Yesterday I went to London with friends from GNPC to do some steet photography. It’s not my strongest genre, and is something I often find difficult and uncomfortable. Consequently, I struggle a bit and the results are frequently variable too!

We visited Columbia Road Flower Market, Old Spitalfields and Brick Lane. By the time I got to Brick Lane I think I was in a better mindset and so got some reasonable shots. I even managed to talk to another great Stranger for my project, Johnnie. He had so much fun dancing along with his friends to some rap music, that I had to choose their image for Day #1511. Here are the best of the rest:

Fortunately, the day also provided a great opportunity to really give my new Canon 50mm EF f/1.4 USM lens a run out. It proved to be excellent for street work, pretty unobtrusive, easy to work with and fast, fast, fast. It produced great bokeh in the right conditions. I used it all day, despite having the 10-22mm wide angle with me. I’ll be doing a longer review of it soon, but for the moment, suffice it to say that I love it!
