London calling

October 02, 2016  •  2 Comments

It's chaos –and whether you say that with a gasp of despair or glee or both is up to you. Whereas Paris (certainly in the centre) is the success of a single overarching monomaniacal topographic vision, London is a chaotic patchwork of history, architecture, style, as disorganised as any dream, and like any dream possessing an underlying logic, but one that we can't quite make sense of, though we know it's there. - China Mieville

Last month I had the good fortune to spend just over two weeks in London - a trip which allowed me to visit with old friends, and to take time to immerse myself in central London.  Of course I came home with photos - oh so many photos! - and have been sorting through them over this past week.  One of the themes that emerged from the photographs was life on the streets.  How could I pass up a chance to do street photography in London?!  Often disorganized, unpredictable, energetic, beautiful - a description that applies just as much to the experience of photographing that life, as to the streets themselves.

This first group of photos is a collection of moments from those disorganized, unpredictable streets.  I hope you enjoy them.
