London - Journeys Through A Megapolis

Hi guys, I hope you all enjoyed my various European city threads on here. With London, I've decided to create blog. Whenever I update my blog I will put a few samples up here of some of my favourites.

My London photographic chronicles began wiith a tour of the south bank of the Thames between Westminster and Tower Brige, in June of this year.

Love this area:

There are a few nice pubs to the left at the riverfront where it is always a pleasure to have a beer or two with friends away from the over-crowded SoHo and Westend bars and pubs. London has plenty of wonderful locations which are not necessarily in the main popular areas yet offer much more pleasant and relaxed environment.

Oh for sure. The best places are always away from the tourist spots. Stay tuned for future updates

Yep that's the original. Smaller selection than Rough Trade East but so much cooler.

I so want to do a feature wall in my place full of posters - love it!

Exactly there (to the right side in this picture) is a cafe where I took tasty hot breakfast when I visited London back in 2007.
