This was my third visit to the monthly Colour Walk at Old Spitalfields Market. My last visit was in August. The Colour Walk is held every third Thursday each month.
I travelled as usual from Farnborough Main to Waterloo. Rather unusually I counted over seven ‘Revenue Officers’ at the station. After the 10.15 am train arrived dozens of students crossed over from the down line to be greeted by the inspectors…
Through The Sidings underneath Waterloo Station, I walked out into Leake Street and then into the tunnel. A couple of artists were there working on the walls. For the other street art please look at this blog.
This visit I picked up up lunch at the Pret in the station before catching the Underground to to Liverpool Street.

Even more portraits
The spinning umbrellas in Old Spitalfields Market
One of the spaces was taken by a display of spinning umbrellas – too good an opportunity to miss!
Back to the Walk
Around the Colour Walk in Old Spitalfields Market
As well as the dozen or so photographers (like me) asking participants to pose, I watched passers by joining in too. This lady sat on the bench for her partner to take her picture with the ladies.
The restaurant by the market entrance had its tables out and one of the waiters joined in the photographic fun.
This gentlemen was obviously very excited by the Colour Walk – not sure how his daughter felt though!
The nearby market stalls were busy as before.
This month I decided to onto the upper level where restaurants and bars were above the entrance to take the group picture. This also gave me a great view across this part of Spitalfields Market.
Looking down also gave new opportunities to take portraits.
Or take in the number of people taking part

Sun Street Passage
From Jeanette’s Instagram images we had noticed a new colourful wall of lights. This is on Sun Street Passage behind Liverpool Street Station. My time there was rushed as the heaven’s had opened and passers-by were few and far between!
