Sat 30th July 2011


He is crossing. The curve of the pavement reminds me the curve the cars were making when they turn at the corner the other day.


Quiet crossings on Sat 30th July 2011


Can they be crossings?

One side is the closed door for both crossings..

Town observation on 28th July 2011(Day 1)

The patterns of the pedestrians, cars, buses and taxis look very clear. Is it because each of them is put in narrow spaces like the space with the scaffolding? Is it we are just not feeling it? Narrow enough not to feel narrow?

Bicycles look, and I am sure they are, lighter than cars and buses. Maybe because they have space around and within them? Can see through the wheels. Bicycle structure is slim and the people riding on are slim!

Cars, coming out in between two groups of people waiting, seem like parading, turning to both sides, and opening up the space in between.

London Town

video
Brothers of red buses waiting next to each other.
But once they start, each has his own way to go at his own speed.
We may come across again some day.



video
In the scaffolding, people walk in a more organised way.
One line goes ahead, the other line goes opposite direction.
The restriction of the space makes people move with more flow.



video
Stopped by red light, waiting to cross in any moment.
Some float out without patience.
People cross each other.
Brief encounter with others.
In between two lands.
In between thoughs.



video
Watch people crossing from cars' point of view
Feels somehow superior?



video
A big mouth is drinking people.
Where are you rushing off?

A battle between one who wants attention and ones who don't want to pay attention.



video
Waves of people come and go.
Strange to be so close to strangers.



video
Flocking.
Each doing his own business
and without knowing following the flow of the colleagues.
