Streets of London

London ~ you love it or hate it ... ... or want to laugh or cry at what is happening. Having lived there for a couple of years I suppose that I never saw it with a tourist's eye

Who is behind the bars? The viewer who is looking out on the tourists or the tourists who are being watced by the viewer?

Bresson's 'decisive moment' and the contradiction between the advert for affluence and the man with his plastic raincoat....

...While whenever you've got the odd moment (for Bourneville chocolate), the no waiting, the bus stop and the 'queue' are in conflict.


You could wander around London taking photographs wherever you wanted of whoever you wanted with a camera held up to the eye or looking down into the waist level viewer.
