Normally the route I take to Tate Modern is either from London Bridge in one direction or from Waterloo bridge in the other, but always walking beside the Thames. But this time I walked along Southwark St away from the crowds and the river. This area of London is full of contrasting new and old architecture all jostling for place.
While in London I saw an exhibition of Irving Penn's portraits for Vogue at the National Portrait Gallery. So many of the portraits have stuck in my mind. A master of black and white studio portraiture.
