Doors- Sandy Row

BLuespitalfielddoorSHS

I was having a mooch around Spitalfields Market and decided to head on over to Sandy Row for a bite of lunch when I noticed this very beautiful blue door. This area was once a thriving Jewish Community, first started up by the Dutch Jews, who worked in the cigar and diamond cutting  industries in London. Just a few paces down from this door is the former Hugenont Chapel, converted into a synagogue in 1870. It’s a small little row with some pretty important doors, and some of them are such a pretty blue! My last door on Sandy Row. (It’s really a very small London Street.)

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.
