derelictlondon




London is a lot of things: chaotic, grey, dirty, poluted... the city that gave birth to the vintage trend it is facing in 2012 to be the capital of the word with the Olympics games. Some people like me believe that the city will not be able to absorve and deal with the extra million of people that will visit the capital of UK... moreover with the still recent riots London is ready to be a model of public-spiritedness to the world?






This is not a compilation of familiar tourist sights, as another of those is hardly needed, but a depiction of an (often un-picturesque) view of everyday life in London


This site is obviously not taken to illustrate London at its most beautiful or most successful, the name derelict London is a memorable name for a website though not everything within this site is of derelict areas and everyone has their own definition of derelict......99% of these pictures were taken by myself during many miles of walkabouts around the great capital. After years of travelling via car or public transport I realised just how littleI had seen of London. (ie just stepping back and looking at buildings and people). I've enjoyed putting this site together and will continue to add more pics. Try not to be too critical because I'm no professional photographer. Neither is this some trendy art student project..............Any places you think should be on this site? Let me know! Also info (however trivial) or stories/personal memories on any of the buildings would be appreciated.
