Simple food made for peanuts, costing small fortunes in prime locations. Wheeled into place and powered by Calor magic. Old traditions do last centuries.

Bumped into the music artist that is Peaky whilst walking around the market square in Camden Town, London.
We exchanged artistic tastes, cd’s and pictures.
An awesome guy with great underground rap lyrics, I was glad he stopped me for a chat.
Look him up…. and donate a few quid to his efforts in making it to tour Japan.

2 Down, 8 Across

3 Down, 5 Across

5pm Friday in the business district of London is always busy. Thousands of people rushing away from the big smoke and heading towards the weekend so they can forget their rat life ways.

It’s a stressful time trying to get the tube and fighting your way through frustrated behaviours.

And through all this congestion a simple moment of calm she sits in full view whilst staying hidden.

Maybe she had time to kill.
Maybe she had nowhere to go.
Maybe waiting for the next bus, just to get a seat.

No-one cared to ask.

Or maybe, 2 Down, 8 Across was just too much of a challenge to give up now.

Turn a corner in old London Town and you are reminded of the past and present.

Down a dusty old London side street, leading into a busy open market stands a grand image of working life of yesteryear. It took me by surprise at the time. This wonderful moment on a massive board and no-one had noticed it.

I was drawn to it straight away (I love anything to do with how we used to live), when I noticed this guy on the phone just sitting there.

It struck me just how powerful the moment was. Here was a guy, sitting on a chair, using a mobile phone. A classic scene of 21st Century lifestyle with the back drop of 1930’s living perfectly in line with each other.

I had to get in close to take the picture and for the guy to notice me. I hoped he would become a little annoyed. I wanted him to look at me in the same way the gentlemen where in the picture. After standing there for a few minutes just looking at him he gave the look you see.

For me this is a perfect example of old and new and how technology, fashion and attitude may have changed over time, our personal living has stayed the same.

This was my favourite photo from a day shooting in London and probably one of the small handful of images I am really proud of.
