“We’re not really heading to the location this week for the street in particular, rather it’s inhabitants. Silk Street is a bit of a back street, but it boasts the entrance to one of the most loved / hated of London’s architectural centerpieces – the Barbican Centre.
At some point we will actually visit here, but for now you’re stuck with shooting from the outside. But what choice you have – towers, golden statues, sweeping roadways. Of course it’s not just the Barbican – the Guildhall School of Music and Drama is here, and an old WWSI friend, Milton Court.
There’s plenty to see and usually there’s a bit of bustle going on around the entrance. It’s one of these places that you might find totally uninspiring to start with, but have a nosey and you’ll find plenty to shoot.”
