My London: candid moments of urban and street life – with a Leica M

Hello, folks!
Today I want to bring you in 
one of the most photographed places in the world, clearly a very touristic destination: London City.

I know, you are already thinking about the Big Ben, the London Bridge, Picadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and so on… Do these names sound familiar to you, right? I must admit, also for me, the city was always just about that.

Stay there, don’t leave, because this time I will show you a side of London that you are not used to see, as I will try to go more local, more Britis, If I may say so…

To get more original pictures, always follow the locals.

Being a street photographer, after some years of experience, I’ve learned that the best side of a place, the real soul, is always away from the touristic paths, where the locals are used to spend their daily routine.

And so, after many many times visiting London, and coming back always with the same boring pictures, I’ve decided to get rid of any transportation and explore another side of the city, all by foot, along the entire weekend.

With a Leica M and my legs.

At the end of these exhausting but certainly exciting two days, and walking for an incredible distance of 35km, I’ve seen a beautiful and vibrant side of the city, that I’ve never seen before.

with me, other than my beautiful wife, my lovely Leica M typ 262 and the two lenses, Summicron M 28mm f2 ASPH, and Summicron M 50mm f2

All starts from Mile End.

The long walking path starts from Mile End, and continue following the Regent’s Canal, then passing through Islington and then I just randomly choose the directions by following the instinct.

It was tough, but I may say that for the first time, I’ve breath the real British side of London, feeling not as a classic tourist. I finally had the chance to see a genuine of local life that you will never see around the most famous and iconic sightseeing.

And here are the pictures…
