London snapshots: Shoreditch

By mrswoolybill
One last visit.
The first law of motion blur: there is always one (relatively) sharp foot...
Thanks for looking,

For me, the best of this series so far. And I prefer the colour version.
Alfred concurs.

Great shot and one I may I have called "Stepping away from fame". Love the choice of b&w with all that art.

This place will stay with me forever as I came off my scooter as I pulled away from the lights. The back wheel came off, I went over the handlebars and I watched the wheel pass me. My daily trip into work when we had to live in Dalston after we first got married.

Marty Feldman eyes (is it really as long ago as 1982 he died?).
Yes, this is definitely the best from this location.

Hop along Cassidy hits the streets of Shoreditch 😊 Mono for me Moira although for the wall Art has to be colour to respect the artists work, so both. So only one award, because I can't give you two 😁 🏆

excellent shot

I like the mono for the whole scene, the passer-by with one leg and a tail. In the colour version I find the left edge somewhat distracting; maybe a square(ish) crop to concentrate on the graffiti (which is splendid) and the person. Just a thought. A well caught moment, tho.

This location is becoming quite iconic as a backdrop, having friends as well as myself using it. You have managed to take it to another level with the use of a slow shutter speed - I love both versions but b&w gets my vote and first UA of the day.

Looks like the guy with the big teeth just ate the walkers leg. Still chewing on it. I think he wants to be famous again. Maybe that contraption on the ground is for hooking legs. Like both very much.

Good use of shutter speed to freeze the movement 👍 Like both version, but think mono just wins 😃

You had fun at that location, didn't you?
