Eyes on The Wall!

A beautiful piece of art installed on a wall in Brick Lane, London. These walls have the privilege of hosting similar great work of unknown artists. My previous post on the street art can be found here.

I will be posting more street art from these narrow alleys. More information about street art in teh area can be found on Street Art in Brick lane.

Brick Lane, London

Graffiti & Street art, Retro style clothing market, Art exhibitions, Street market, Curry houses and Masala Chai – yes, I am talking about Brick lane.

Situated in east London, Brick lane is a vibrant place for shoppers, artists, designers and street photographers (special mention). Street photographers, we can spot them camouflaged in the crowd or at the corner of street trying to capture the mood of the market. I joined the flock last Sunday when I decided to take on my fear of photographing people on the street.

I decided to walk from Bethnal Green which is on central line on London’s tube network and within 20 minutes I found myself in the labyrinth of cobbled streets. Once one reaches here it is entirely up to him how he satisfies his soul – pleasure of shopping of jewelry, trendy clothing, delicious Bangladesi food & sweets or just take a feel of place; I was there to fight my fear.

I am posting my favorite here though it is not a street shot with people. For more photographs of Brick lane please visit my Flickr page

One of my favorite place in London where I can spend whole day without any plan is Greenwich. A Beautiful park, The National Maritime Museum, Royal Observatory, Greenwich Market, My favorite Noddle House – Greenwich has everything to offer. Streets Packed with tourists trying to take photo of everything possible, regulars enjoying their favorite pint, others relaxing by the Cutty Sark, which stands tall remembering the glory of old days when it used to be one of the fastest tea clipper, is a usual scene almost everyday. (I will be posting Cutty Sark’s photograph in my next post).

All this mayhem is not far from Canary Warf which is one of the two major district of London just across the Thames. I have posted both color and BW landscape of Canary Warf and I hope you will enjoy them.
