These are great photos eighty4. Its wierd because these are places we're all familiar with but you make them seem new somehow? Even though I let London annoy me this threads given me a new appreciation of the place.

You got more?

Thanks, yeah I could'nt agree more. I do tend to look for some good graffiti when I'm walking around a city I don't know but I couldnt find much in london, though I was only there a few days so didn't have much time.

It depends where you go. From your photos it looks like you stuck mainly to the touristy areas. If you venture further South or North you'll see more.
