It's hard to see what you're trying to achieve here - sure London does have it's fair share of ugly areas and buildings and I'm not trying to deny that, but why take pictures in dull ugly areas? You'd be better off taking pictures in gritty areas with a bit of life in them, places like Brixton or Shoreditch.

Apologies if I've offended you, but I really don't think you've done our great city any favours with this set of pictures!
You've obviously have not seen his ongoing Paris thread. Minatu ku is more keen on capturing the unaesthetic, gritty, urban and multicultural of a city rather than the quaint, touristy or posh. He could use some help on avoiding dark pictures that do not show much but some of his pictures do capture everyday urban scenes that do not try to hide the ugly.

Great pics. Sure, they're not professional. But this is what London is like all the time. Chaotic, lively, unplanned architecture, endless changes and changes to streetscape. Few other places can match the the vibe and energy of the variety and relentlessness London gives.

And this weather *is* like that most of the time.
