A Curious Person's Photographic Notebook

London Flânerie

Flânerie: Urban Wandering

“Through flânerie, time is not lost, it is rediscovered! Guided by instinct, senses all alert, flâneurs watch passing moments intently, all the better to seize them. Flâneurs garner, forage and gather. “*

This is a gathering of passing moments seized as I wandered London.

To view and contemplate art, allowing its spirit to reveal itself, one must remain receptive and serene. The dedicated gallery goer therefore wears sensible shoes.

Lying dormant and lackluster during the winter, this small park, surrounded by nondescript office buildings, awaits the careful gardeners who return in spring to restore it into an oasis of colourful vitality, while  nearby workers, too, await re-entry into this outdoor sanctuary.
