London, March 2017

Two days spent in London on 9th. - 10th. March 2017, mainly for the occasion of "Emergence From The Underground", a film & video screening dedicated to the memory of Mike O'Pray, founder of the Film & Video Umbrella. The programme was screened  at the BFI South Bank/National Film Theatre, introduced by William Fowler, Steven Bode and myself. Aside from attending this event, I visited the Wolfgang Tillmans exhibition at Tate Modern and Eduardo Paolozzi at The Whitechapel Gallery. Both good exhibitions. And in between I walked the streets of London, more or less aimlessly, occasionally pausing to photograph small details encountered en route. Photos below, not in chronological order. At the Tate bookshop I acquired, and then rapidly read, Jon Day's "Cyclogeography: journeys of a London bicycle courier". A good addition to my growing library of books about places/walking/exploring etc.

Looks like a near miss, but not really...

And the interior of the same cafe. There used to be hundreds of places like this, now very few remain.
