Batman's Cape Trouble / by Simon Mooney

It's been a busy August and I didn't think I'd taken many street pictures. Now I've gone through this month's folder of bits and pieces, there's quite a few from my journeys around London, and this edit shows some of the things that caught my eye from the bus, pavement and tube station. I also noticed the flats I photographed for the Spitalfields Life story on Nazir Tanbouli in Haggerston are finally being demolished.

A typographic theme developed with Stoke Newington's Ilex Camera Works entrance (which opened for business in 1900), an apparently unloved doorway mosaic near Highbury Corner and a warning to dog owners in Fulham. The concrete traffic barriers at Smithfield Market - beautifully stencilled as blocks of flats - are a particular favourite. Where will they end up?

St Paul's Cathedral has featured heavily in books I've just read about The Great Fire and The Blitz so I've included a slightly shaky view from across the river underneath Millennium Bridge.
