London neighbourhoods

The past week has been a busy one, with walking tours, visits to museums, and shopping in the markets. 
Among the neighbourhoods I visited were Camden, Spitalfields, Portobello Road, Marylebone, and Whitechapel.
Often the architecture showed a stark contrast between old and new.
The juxtaposition of solid shapes, the rhythm of windows and doors, the detail of chimney pots and antennas, and the strong diagonals all make for interesting compositions. 
Lots of potential here. I'm expecting to find more great material in Birmingham this coming week.
