a beautiful sunny spell after a quick sharp hail stone shower and a little further north than my usual shoreditch walk about, entering into the border of hackney from tower hamlets.
this week one of my journeys too me east, hackney wick east. i bit of a nothing part of the east end of london, a place of change though and gentrification. the gateway to the olympic park and historically the boundary between middlesex and essex. where the river lea, the lee navigation and the hertford union canal meet at the hackney cut.
a place where old meets new, a place of colour and street art too.
