this past week, part 2

October 12, 2010

color creeping in.

watching the blanket of clouds recede as the sun sets over london.

autumn markets.

tufnell park.

this decal made me think of CDR’s work.

red & white.

flipping through the rig out no. 3 from oi polloi.

walking through hampstead heath the other day, i was reminded of the scenes in the park in ‘blow up’ … the green, the grey skies, the sound of the wind in the trees.  (no dead bodies though. phew).

    Would love to have some markets like that here. All that bread! Great autumn feel in these pictures.

    Brian – I am so glad I (just recently) found your blog. I admire your eye for the poetry in everyday details… and your talent for capturing mood.

    My boyfriend and I are moving to London soon, and after 4 years in sunny Southern California, card-carrying sunshine lover that I am, I’ve been quite anxious about our transition to a dreary climate. BUT, indeed, your blog and your loving eye for this amazing city have become the “chicken soup” for my skeptic soul, and I am devouring your posts.

    Can you imagine how glad I was to see your market pictures… the produce and ahh, the beautiful bread… I googled a bit and concluded it must be “Born and Bread”?? Now I already look forward to my first bite! (and we are already dreaming of sleepy, rainy mornings in Leila’s Café…)

    Thank you for giving me so much to dream and look forward to.

    Colors of autumn

    I was only on Hampstead Heath one time, alone, walking across it on a whole long November afternoon in 1990, when I was 21. But for some reason I think about it about every two weeks or so (for the past twenty years). Your last photo looks exactly like my thought. Thank you.

    love your recent shots and seeing autumn colours settling on london. — i do love hampstead heath, it feels like a lifetime since i had picnics there every other weekend.

    we walk the same streets and parks. nice seeing familiar places through different eyes.

    markets in autumn are the best :)

    I’ve been following your blog for months, and when I saw you featured in Uppercase Magazine I was thrilled! You have beautiful, inspiring stuff and you totally deserved the feature page!

    I’m really pleased to have discovered your work. Funny as well because I was just thinking to myself that I always compose photos vertically. You seem to predominantly go horizontal. I wonder why that is. I shall be back and taking notes.
