With this week’s #Frifoto’s theme on Twitter being ‘urban’, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to indulge in some street photography around Chelsea. So yesterday, I pulled my camera out of my bag and snapped away as I went from A to B to C. And here’s what I captured …

The colourful houses off King’s Road

Royal Avenue with Royal Hospital Chelsea at the other end.

So a few weeks ago, I headed over to Brick Lane – the London capital of street art and street photography to hone my skills.
And here are some of the snapshots I captured. This is just the beginning …
