I went out for a little wander tonight to try to take some new images of Leytonstone all lit up at night – so here we have a local Moroccan cafe, the underground station, the bus station, McDonald’s, and the Walnut Tree pub 🙂
PS The reason I’ve grayscaled them all is that I had my white balance all wrong tonight so they all had a yellow tinge to them – oops!

As well as the Underground system, London also has an Overground railway, and so here in Leytonstone there are lots of little bridges like these dotted around all over the place 🙂

Here in London, tower blocks are a common place where people live 🙂

I love all these urban juxtapositions of nature and engineering 🙂

The play of words on the sign on this traditional shoe repair stall caught my eye while I was walking through a Victorian shopping arcade next to Liverpool Street Station in London – the older shoe repair guy caught my eye as I took the shot and gave me a little wave. The sign said ‘Time wounds all heels’ – ha!
It’s funny the way random everyday stuff often attracts my attention while so many other people just walk on by not noticing. As well as the sign I really liked the moody effect of the dull dark green painted surround juxtaposed against the brightly lit strip inside the booth.
And I also liked the way the customer in the red socks is sitting waiting for his work shoes to be re-soled or whatever during his lunch break. Perhaps it’s more of an inaction shot than an action shot – and I guess he’ll definitely be classed as a ‘well-heeled’ customer once he gets his shoes back! 🙂
