Good to be back

First time in the office for four months and great to be back. This view over Elephant and Castle has changed since I was last here; the old shopping centre has been closed and large chunks of it removed, and the view will change even more drastically over the months to come as the new University of the Arts London development begins to take shape.

Although the old shopping centre was certainly tatty, the development is tinged with sadness – another part of London which used to benefit from an incredible social mix, colour and diversity will no doubt end up being more gentrified, more expensive and more homogenous.

I’ve not yet ventured back on to the Tube, so it was a walk back across the River to St Pancras at the end of the day and a chance to see another view I’ve missed for months – these couple of photos have been taken by millions of people so nothing new, but it was the first time I’d seen this view for months and I’m happy to share….
