saturday shoreditch stroll

we had spent the earlier part of our day pottering in and around the barbican. but after standing in one too many queues, for far too long, we decided to retreat and head east for a walk amongst the streets of shoreditch, followed by some delicious lunch and some ping-pong action at shoreditch house. below you will see some wonderful street art that we took in along our way, on our saturday shoreditch stroll. stunning as always, these artists are so damn clever. i really want to have a go!

    What amazing art. I don’t think I have ever seen anything like it. I can barely draw a stickman so am very impressed.

      the guy doing a handstand is my favourite out of these, the skin tone is just brilliant

    Wow, they look totally amazing. I’d love to look at those the next time I’m down-I think my daughter would enjoy it too, fabulous!

    Wonderful wonderful photographs – such great examples of street art. Not been down this way for ages, long overdue in fact, so lovely to see. Well done going for a walk after Shoreditch House, that’s an achievement in itself LOL! Great post, thanks for sharing with #whatsthestory

    They are amazing. My eldest daughter would love them. My faves have to be the elephant/octopus and the little creatures on the yellow lines. Sounds like a great Saturday stroll.

      i really like the double yellow lines too. i only noticed them when i crouched down to take a photo of something else!

  6. March 3, 2014 / 21:46

    Wow, they are amazing and some of them are on such a large scale. I wonder how much planning and doing they take.

    • March 5, 2014 / 22:34

      the scale is mind blowing. i would love to sit and watch from start to finish

    What brilliant street art, and fantastic photos! There is a lot of street art in bristol around the stokes croft area, and of course the Banksys. Fab post, really enjoyed looking at these x

    • March 5, 2014 / 22:36

      i need to plan a trip to bristol to take them all in, might have to ask you for some suggestions!

    I think my favourite is the one on the yellow lines, love the way that it’s almost hidden.

    • March 5, 2014 / 22:40

      i nearly missed it too, unexpected art!

    I love street art, it’s not only beautiful and showcases wonderful artist, but it’s the rebellious streak of making something ugly beautiful but illegally!

    • March 5, 2014 / 22:43

      we have a big white wall outside our house i’m half tempted to have a go! ha ha

    I love the cluster of higgled piggeldy streets in East London as there is always a surprise around the corner. I do miss London for being able to go out and ‘find’ interesting things just by going for a walk but then I have fallen in love with my wellies now. Your photographs are stunning x

    • March 5, 2014 / 22:46

      hurrah for wellies!! and thank you x

    • March 5, 2014 / 22:47

      they are real art!

  11. March 4, 2014 / 13:55

    Wow! They are fab! Is there a particular area for street art as L would absolutely love this?

    • March 5, 2014 / 22:49

      glad you think so too 😉

  12. March 4, 2014 / 23:40

    I think that this is fantastic – I love the photographs and would love to see them in real life too!

    • March 5, 2014 / 22:49

      go and have a wander you will find lots to see x
