Chinatown at Night

When I was on my way back to Earl’s Court from Camden on Sunday, I couldn’t resist a stop off at Sacred Cafe on Ganton Street for a savoury muffin and a pot of relax tea. Figured I couldn’t waste a nice night, so I wandered through Chinatown and Soho a bit. Here’s three little Chinatown shots for today.

Chinatown at Night

Elephant Parade 1-10

Some very dedicated people found all 258 elephants in a few days, others found a couple here and there. I suppose I was somewhere in the middle. I found 203, with 55 still missing when they were taken off the streets after last weekend for maintanence. Of course starting today, the majority of the ellies have formed a herd in Chelsea, so I’ll be catching the ones I missed this weekend.

I haven’t posted any of the photos yet besides the interviews, so expect lots of them over the next few weeks. I’ll be posting by number to keep track. Here’s the first 10 on the list.
