Shoreditch tourist

I was in Shoreditch the other week feeling like a tourist and wandering around taking pictures. When you don't live or work in the area, like me, you really notice all the amazing art all around you and it's hard to keep your camera/phone in your pocket. The area is buzzing with creativity and people are quite literally colouring the place in. If you haven't been there for a while, why not? There are so many little shops and cafes and restaurants to visit. I did notice that the hipster Boxpark "pop-up shopping mall" which has mainly independent shops in its re-purposed shipping containers has been co-opted by, whisper it... Gap. They'd taken two containers. Shhh. Don't tell anyone.

No one's really doing this on the buildings around where I live tbh.
