City as Treasure Trove

It’s less than three miles between Mayfair and Camden Town.  Between London’s poshest address and it’s most bohemian is a distance that’s almost walkable.  This is one of the reasons I love London.  For an architectural photographer, it’s like an Aladdin’s cave of wonders — every village is unique and they range in style from the most proper to the completely offbeat.  Instead of a sign, why not a gigantic dragon or Doc Martin boot on a shopfront?  There’s also murals, music and a multitude of international menus.  It’s so overwhelming that I don’t venture up there very often as to make the trip a photographic occasion.
