For today’s post I’m back down to sea level. The streets of East London: Spitalfields to be precise.
Do you, like me, find that photography enriches your day-to-day life? The act of carrying a camera almost everywhere, I believe, makes me much more aware of what is around me. I see things, notice things, that I probably wouldn’t otherwise take note of. And I try to take that awareness one stage further by making sure that I am not just looking around me but also Up and Down.
Today’s image is the result of looking up.
This is taken in the interior of the Old Spitalfields Market just east of the City of London. This cavernous building was erected in 1887 and served as a major wholesale fruit and vegetable market for the Capital until 1991 when it located to new premises. It’s now home to a thriving mixed market of up to 110 stallholders with numerous cafes and restaurants close by.
I was wandering through this and happened to look up. Within the interior is this boxed-in glass structure – a building within a building – and what caught my eye was the way the glass wall reflected the original glass roof-lights in a continued but distorted diagonal line.
