I don’t stumble through Lancaster Gate’s turnstiles by chance. When I join Ian Brumpton for spritely street photo walks I have ended up here. The one other reason is to visit the Serpentine Gallery and their new Pavilion each year. Here’s a shot from my 2013 visit.

It’s a fast 10 minute walk through the well tended gardens to the Pavilion so, in this 30 degree weather, drink plenty of water!

Serpentine Gallery Pavillion, 2014, by Smiljan Radić

Smiljan Radić is the fourteenth architect to accept the invitation to design a temporary Pavilion outside the entrance to the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens.

Occupying a footprint of some 514 square metres on the lawn of the Serpentine Gallery, plans depict a semi-translucent, cylindrical structure of fibreglass, designed to resemble a shell, which rests on large quarry stones. This work has its roots in the architect’s earlier work, particularly The Castle of the Selfish Giant, inspired by the Oscar Wilde story and the Restaurant Mestizo – part of which is supported by large boulders.

The 2014 Pavilion is designed as a flexible, multi-purpose social space with a café sited inside. Visitors will be encouraged to enter and interact with the Pavilion in different ways throughout its four month tenure in the Park.

Captured, last week, in Brick Lane, Shoreditch.

Surprise!

When I say ‘captured’, you know I mean “I took a photo” rather than “I took a woman”?! I always pause after typing, “I’m shooting in London today”, like I’m being watched after triggering a monitoring system for typing a deadly word… Err, hi NSA.

Streets Series: Venice III

I am pretty committed to squeezing every ounce of photography from the streets of London as I am capable, but I have used my passport and here’s some proof!

These images were taken during Venice’s impressive Carnivale, always in February. Numerous people, I presume locals, dress in these fabulous costumes and wander around the centre of Venice generally looking awesome whilst they pose for tourists. Unlike Cuba, they don’t pose for tips either!
