- Start carrying a camera around with you all the time.
- Make yourself look up, around, at buildings, shops.
- Find cool stuff and smile – hurrah.
- Take photos.
- Remark to self that you have discovered a little bit of London’s hidden past, or similar. Appreciate.
Simples. Here’s some stuff I’ve found over the last couple of months, and I wasn’t even trying very hard:
Bottom of St Martins Lane – seriously, did you guys see this wee dude? Cycle past every day, only saw him yesterday
Round the corner from The Albion in Islington
Hollen Street, Soho (thanks to comments below who kindly corrected me!)
Dulwich Road, Herne Hill
Acre Lane, Covent Garden
Brixton loves Bovril
What did J&J Goddard make? I hope it was bowler hats. Or corsets.
This is just round the corner from me. A bloke came out the barber shop to tell me it was from 1814
