Fan Makers and Welsh Presbyterians: A small part of the charm of the City of London
Tramping around the City of London, camera in hand, is a constant delight. I confess to spending a lot of time on the hoof in this part of the world and I know that every corner brings something new and interesting. Take Fann Street, near Old Street and the Barbican. It is called Fann Street for a good reason: It's where the fans were made by the Huguenot immigrants in the early 18th century. On the site is the more modern incarnation of the Eglwys Jewin, the Welsh Presbyterian church in London, dating from 1774. If you are bored by Bore Sul you can always call in for a spot of Nos Sul of an evening.
These two pictures were taken today as I walked from Barbican station to Red Dot Cameras. Camera was the Sony A7II and the Zeiss 24-70mm zoom. Below is another example of the magic of London photography. Visiting the ruined churchyard of St. Dunstan-in-the-East a few month ago I happened upon two Chinese students doing their own photographic session. So I muscled in and got the shot below with the road-test Leica M-P and 50mm Summicron. Apart from the sheer pleasure of exploring, all this photography keeps me fit as I strive towards my target of 10,000 steps a day. I will be reporting more on the incentive I've received from owning the Apple Watch. It's making me fit.
