Anonymous 13:19, I think you need to adjust your monitor settings.
Nice stuff.

And the not-so good-looking spell 'instalments' the American way.

Yank said...

American spelling is OK you know. It's still English.

We fought a whole war in the eighteenth century to get away from you and your lousy spelling.

Interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely photographs and interesting shots - black and white does look good.
Does it matter if this particular bunch of half a dozen people happen all to be white (although the girl in the Broca has very asiatic hair)? It is a very small sample and I would suggest that it is more insulting to feel you have to make a point and find a token representative sample of each race.

PS Bus 172 redresses the balance - half and half - apart from the person totally hidden under their umbrella.

Brockley, wear we spell wear where. Everyone will be doing it this way soon, it's a thing.

Tamsin said...

In that case do I mean "thear" umbrella?

Really needed a picture of "Duke" of Duke's Nightstore.

Anon 13.14 - She just took some pictures of some people who happened to be white. I'm sure some days she takes pictures of people who happen to be black too. If she was claiming to have photographed everyone in Brockley, and they were all white, then you may have a point. But she isn't and you don't.

The Cat Man said...

Shouldn't that be "article"?

Tamsin said...

But the writer put some heart in it.

Buy a flash gun, it will improve your pictures. Available light is for people with too much time on their hands. Such people are artists, not journalists. Nice pics though.
