    The place was heaving! Big strides mixed with small steps made it quite exhausting trying not to kick heels or tread on toes. Especially so when someone stops suddenly in front of you to look at their cell phone. You'd think that with all the funky people going there it would be a great place to shoot. Actually, you need a rubber neck to take them all in, and reflexes of Ali to shoot before someone blocks the view. Working outside of the main area worked much better catching people as they arrived or left.

    but I much prefer Brick Lane in East London.

    As someone who lives a very rural existence that is a portrait of an alien and scary world, one in which I'd be frightened to get my camera out, indeed I'd probably be frightened full stop. Non the less, thanks for sharing.

    Yeah, I live near a small American city. My neighborhood isn't fully rural, but I'm close enough to woodsy areas I can escape to any time I want. I admire people who can do street photography well, but I much prefer seclusion and solitude whenever possible.

    I used to work in the heart of the City of London and I love the buzz there. However, I live in an area which is 3/4hr from the city to the east and 10 minutes to countryside also to the east. I have the best of both worlds. I can appreciate that the city is not everyones cup of java

    Looks like a action pack place. Interesting cross-section of folks. It reminds me somewhat of my last visit to NYC.

    I worked in Camden for a few months and I was always amazed by the number of tattoo shops (parlours?) in the area around the market. It seemed like every third shop was set up as a place to get tattoos, and they were all apparently thriving. I used to wonder how many of the people walking around me had recently been tattoed, and whether that accounted for their expressions.

    Trying to find someone without a tattoo' is like trying to find someone not on their phone or looking at their tablet. Trying to find someone without both attributes is likely impossible?
