NARROW WAY OF THINKING?
The weather’s been pretty awful over Easter down in London but I did manage to get out to Camden to walk from Camden Town to Regents Park, taking shots of the Regents Canal for a book proposal. Canals are interesting things: walking along them makes you feel that you aren’t in London or the London you know. I did Little Venice last Sunday and the canal path from Camden to Maida Hill is fantastic. There are little communities of people who live on their boats, apart from the rest of the city. I’ve never walked this route before and I’m really enjoying the research for this book. I’m just hoping that I’ll be able to make it happen as a book because I spend so much time wandering around London that it would be great if someone paid me something for the privilege. The whole recession thing has been so depressing that it’s been nice to do something that doesn’t rely on a booming economy. So here are a few shots taken along the Regents Canal between Camden Town and the back of Edgware Road…












FROM FAMINE TO FEAST
At last there’s been some progress on chasing up freelance work and it means I’m going to have an exceptionally busy Christmas and New Year. That’s one of the weird things about being a freelancer: you’re either absolutely dead or incredibly busy. There doesn’t seem to be a middle ground. So that’s why I haven’t updated the blog much this week. I’ll be putting a review of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button up over the weekend. In the meantime, here are a few photos I’ve taken while I’ve been at Total Film in Marylebone. During lunch, I’ve walked up to Regents Park and even up to Lords at St Johns Wood, which isn’t really that far and there are a couple of photos here from Marylebone Road near Warren Street and the stiltwalkers were outside the Royal Academy of Music near Harley Street. I don’t know why they were there but the new lens is pretty decent in low light…













PICTURES OF THE CITY
Here are some more London photos of Heals on Tottenham Court Road, the BT Tower in Fitzrovia, statues around Portland Place near Regent’s Park, a statue of Churchill and Roosevelt in Mayfair, a photo of the launch party of Open House and more. Heals was great to photograph because of the way that the flags moved in the delicate breeze and the view of the BT Tower from an extreme angle. Here you go…
