How was your Christmas weekend? Mine was a bit unusual. Both Saturday and Sunday I ventured out in the city centre to take some pictures with my Fujifilm X-T3 camera.
There weren’t many people in central London on Boxing Day. I got off the tube at Tottenham Court Road and moved towards the new exit. I stayed there for some 15 minutes waiting for human being to show up. In my mind I had a black and white picture of the new escalator with one person on it. Unfortunately, nobody showed up so I had to settle for this Fan Ho-inspired moody shot (FYI, Fan Ho was one of the most influential black and white street photographers of the 20th century).

On Sunday, I wondered around the City, walking from Chancery Lane to London Wall and then to Liverpool Street where I met up with a friend who is also into photography. From there, we went to Brick Lane and then Shoreditch/Hoxton. As we met up relatively late, the sun started to set as we got to Shoreditch and therefore there was not much to photograph. Only one picture is worth sharing from the session…
