Life Goes On - Clapham High Street - London.



After four days of disruption to London's day-to-day activities that were held hostage by a group of mindless criminals as young as seven years old, life is slowly but surely returning to normal as these two images I shot on Clapham High Street demonstrate.

Such a shame for all the sadness and misery these people have caused. I am glad things are starting to get back to normal.

Some amazing tattoos.

<3 cobalt pleats!

I suppose what a lot of people want to do is move on and leave behind the violence. I'm praying the civil unrest doesn't move up to Scotland too!

Relieved to hear, David. As we're still at the beach house (end of Long Island) you're my eyes & ears. Our Man on the Street, roving photographer.

There's a cool young couple renting near my mom: Squire and Corrina (how COOL are those names) and she's got a similar tattoo thing going. She was worried they wouldn't fit in but like with any community: if you're true to yourself, and have a generous spirit, you'll be loved.

So proud and inspired by the whole clean up spirit. Looking forward to seeing more shots, your streetstyle has evolved this week into documentary photography.

There really is a bit of a weird feel... I think people really don't know how to react (myself included). Just trying to go on with my daily life

I love how your pictures seem to leave the identity of the person photographed mysterious.

so glad that sanity is returning...the news reports that it was thousands of unemployed thugs that have never worked a day in their lives...is unemployment really that staggering?...they must be trying to tell us something...

I'm happy to hear things are returning to normal in London. You've really transformed into a photojournalist this week and now have warzone experience!

Love the photographs above, especially the blue and white outfit.

So glad to hear of things going back to normal, but your point about the 7-yr old criminal is truly disturbing! How did a society as evolved as England's devolve this way?

Love your photojournalism. xx

i'm still in shock at the images of all the riots... i have a hard time believing that this kind of thing happened in London! hope you're doing well over there!

Mouthwash said...

Be careful! I heard about the riots on the news, and it seems a bit scary.

I hope it mellows down.

crazy rioters!

Elle Audrey Marie said...

What a bunch of N.E.A.T. dick heads! Seven years old? I think some just took to it as an opportunity to behave like a criminal.. reminds me of what happened in L.A. the riot...

Angel Garcia said...

Ah I hope things are getting better out there! I love the tattoos.. I have two and always say I want more but dont have the courage to get more now haha..
