365 Londoners

, originally uploaded by madeinsheffield.

I couldn't resist finishing the year of this blog with this wonderful character portrait from Charlotte.

It sums up 2007 for me - a great face, stories to tell, and now having to smoke outside but still resilient. Resilience despite the environment.

Looking forward to meeting more terrific characters in 2008.

In Islington. People still want to buy other people's junk - the junk and the people in the shops telling tales of a big city. Us and our possessions, our way of owning the sheer expanse of London. How we stamp our features on ourselves and the spaces around us.

Another one I took back in the summer, guys hanging out waiting for the bus in Kilburn.

We're going to keep up the 365 Londoners project next year, and still hoping to show it somewhere. Do get in touch!

Can't remember if I blogged these back in September. Reminds me of a sunny day on the Kilburn High road (or anywhere else in London), people coming out to watch the world go by. looking forward to warmer weather, the easy days, hours of sunshine.
