  1. The teeming masses…and the random guy on a bike with the messenger bag. Something oddly out of time and place in the image, modern and and old, foreign and familiar, at the same time.

    1. Thanks Mike. I found a moment where there weren’t cars trying to push their way down the street. I think this gives it that timeless quality. And the rickshaws which are such a new addition to London also make it feel like somewhere else.

  2. I love the aesthetics of this. It’s like a cross between an old picture from 1910, and a scene out of Bladerunner.

    1. I know what you mean. I think it’s the lack of cars (though there is one black cab that has sneaked in to the top one). The rickshaws have a look of old horse-drawn vehicles about them.
