One / 37a

Over three years ago, I embarked on a series entitled ‘One’, and posted 36 images, the last in December 2014… How time has flown….

On recent visits to London, I got a few more solitary souls, and thought I would append these to the series…(in actual fact, my Wordless Wednesday last week was another that I could have used).

Here’s one seen in Spitalfields one evening – I thought he blended into the backdrop rather well!:

Striding through the past?

Striding through the past?

Well, I miscounted….37 was Malta, so this has been named 37a!!

  1. You do have a knack for this type of capture. I enjoy seeing what you see.

  2. Oh yes, he really looks like a blast from the past too. Great title, Sue. 🙂

      Glad you like ‘One’ as a title! I dreamt it up a few years ago now… This one was a challenge, because the guy was carrying a very modern plastic bag, and there was a late 20th century alarm on the wall – they both had to go!

  3. A lovely street scene Sue!

  4. You have a knack of capturing your people at just the right point – superb placement and wonderful palette.

  5. Despite its modern trendy status, Spitalfields retains a fascinating old-world feel, and you managed to capture that so well, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Many thanks, Pete! The older parts are starting to fall off the cliff, so I’m trying to see what I can when I have the energy and the opportunity….

    What a beautiful old building Sue and a great capture. 😀 ♥

  7. It could almost be a Dickensian scene!

  8. Love the idea of your lurking here and there, Sue. A fascinating creation, with a little nod towards Steam Punk perhaps?

  9. Nice one Sue…could be an album cover…

  10. He’s got his eye on you! X

  11. Emilio Pasquale

    Love the color palate in this one. He does seem to fit perfectly in the scene!

  12. I love your ‘One’ series, so glad you are bringing them back. And like others have said you do this type of old, faded, muted palette scene so well.

  13. This reminds me of a school of art in New York, in the 20′-30’s that captured life as it is…ah, just remembered they were called Ashcan School.

  14. This reminds me of certain old prints…
    Love it!

  15. I agree, he can be situated in some other era too 🙂 Very atmospheric.

  16. Another lovely glimpse of a bygone world Sue – excellent! 😉

  17. Love how his hair, shoes and coat colours all blend in so well with the shop front colour scheme, nice capture

  18. Stunning. Love the mood and everything about the image. I agree totally with Jude on her lovely comment.
