Shaftesbury Avenue

.…I saw you walking out, Shaftesbury Avenue…

That’s the lyric that always grabs me in the song, Wild West End by Mark Knopfler

The words set the stage for my feelings about a famous London neighborhood where I love to wander and take pictures.

This portrait is just one of many that I’ve done there. It all began in front of the Palace Theatre. With my back to the famous thoroughfare mentioned above, and looking down Moor Street, this frame was the starting point for the session.

There’s another line in the song that sums it all up. “This is the seventh heaven street to me.”

That’s my feeling too.
