Le Flâneur

Le flâneur appears to meander through the streets without plan or purpose. But this randomness is the flâneurs rationale – to experience the life of the city by surrendering to its ebb and flow – the chance encounters and unexpected discoveries, which can only be revealed through the act of walking.

This is a photographer’s perspective on the urban landscape, an observation of the everyday environment.  It’s a personal cityscape, created through a rambling path through the city.

The images posted here comprise collections of images defined either by geography or particular urban-based subjects.

You can purchase le flâneur’s magazines and books via the publishing imprint, Urban Impressions. You can also follow le flâneur’s tumblr blog or instagram feed for regular updates on observations on the urban environment.

 

What I see from the London bus

I’ve been continuing to explore London streets from the viewpoint of the bus – what started as a bit of a distraction from my commutes to west London has evolved. I’ve been taking other routes and watching the London landscape pass by.

Some of the more recent images are along Holloway Road..
