Old Street, EC1, The Way We See It.

“I’m in a generous sort of mood this week so we’re going to have a peach of a location where you can’t possibly fail to get far too many pictures from which to choose three. This week we’re off to every photobloggers favourite, Old Street.

Recorded as Ealdestrate in c.1200, it’s origins are Roman, hence the name. Today it’s a street of two halves separated by the awful Old Street roundabout. From the Clerkenwell Road end you have some lovely interesting shops (an old style press and nice art shops,) and the wonders of St Lukes.

On the other side of the road you have various famous Banksy spots, and all the trendiness that is Shoreditch. It’s a great street – dirty, busy, hectic and fascinating. You will have fun!”
