Canal Reach, London

January 10, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

We kicked off the year yesterday with a (birthday weekend) walk through the streets of London.

Off the train at King's Cross and straight round the back via the Guardian offices to see a sculpture exhibition there I'd wanted to visit. Unfortunately it was closed. That doesn't matter on a day where you have loose plans, as everything becomes exciting and feels much more alive. There's something in spontaneity that wakes me up. Onwards to Redemption coffee in the pretty glorious Coal Drops Yard - almond croissant and a milky latte for me on this sun-filled London morning thanks! How this space has changed from its original use. My mind can't help hearing echoes of history that seem to make noise from every direction. We've walked this place so many times to photograph it since the earliest days of its development and the change has been staggering. These photos were taken along Canal Reach, walking north east. Construction continues at pace - in this case, even on a Sunday. Deadlines 'n' all that.

A walk along the canal via Angel and a pub or two resulted in the day finishing at another favourite spot of ours - The Barbican. It IS my taste but it's not everybody's. However you see it, it cannot be denied that this 1960s estate was a forward thinking, expressive feat of architectural design alongside ambitious town planning. I feel so much comfort here - so many happy memories in and around it - almost like listening to an old song.

So the busperson's holiday drew to a close and homeward bound to Cambridge we travelled. Eyes turn to 2022 and the creations I'm lucky enough to be asked to photograph. I must say I'm extremely excited and am already charging the batteries for my first shoot this week.

May I take this opportunity to wish you, your businesses and whatever designs you might be involved in well. Good luck, and I hope to see my friends - new and old, at some point through the year...

Rich.
