One of my favorite flickr groups is London by Londoners. As its name implies, it is confined to those who live or have lived in London, and it attracts many of London’s best flickr photographers.
A recent discussion in the group suggested a challenge to photograph the 32 Boroughs of London and the City of London within the space of a year:
February – Camden, Haringey, Enfield
March – Islington, Hackney, Waltham Forest
April – Tower Hamlets, Newham, Redbridge
May – City, Barking, Havering
June – Greenwich, Bexley, Bromley
July – Southwark, Lewisham, Croydon
August – Lambeth, Merton, Sutton
September – Wandsworth, Kingston, Richmond
October – Hammersmith, Hounslow, Hillingdon
November – Kensington and Chelsea, Ealing, Harrow
December – Westminster, Brent, Barnet.
Disappointingly few have taken up the challenge, but I enjoy having a framework to encourage me to get up and explore parts of my city I’ve never seen. I may change the order around in coming months, but in February, I tackled Camden, Haringey and Enfield, and in March, I’ve visited Islington and Hackney and have a few more days to hit Waltham Forest.
I will be using this blog to chronicle my travels.
