<Back to Free Parking : See all Monopoly posts : On to Chance>
From my last shooting location, Vine Street, it was a short walk east along Piccadilly, then onto Leicester Square and cutting through onto Charing Cross Road which allowed for an early cup of tea in the Crypt cafe at St Martins in the Fields before staring my progressions up Strand. My first shot on the Strand was another bus reflection (becoming a bit of a habit). I particularly liked this one as you can just see the driver through a dark part of the reflection in the window. Further along the road there was a Boots chemists delivery van stuck in the traffic. I think their artwork of blue eye shadow was greatly enhanced by the rivets in the metal side of the van! At the Eastern end of the Strand just before Kings College is Somerset House, home of The Courtauld Institute of Art. They always have interesting displays in their windows which face onto the Strand. One of these windows was my final image from this location, a simple window reflection showing some beautiful fabric showing through the reflection. I really love this image!
Luckily for me the Strand leads directly onto Fleet Street, so it was an easy move to my next shooting location. However, before Fleet Street I needed some images for my second Chance location, which will be the subject of my next post.
