Chancery Lane, London

Chancery Lane, London
I admire greatly the urban photography of Jean-Michel Berts. He shoots b&w in the blue hour, taking advantage of building and street lights to emphasise contrast and to also take advantage of the emptiness of the city at the weekends in these periods

Chancery Lane leads up from the Strand to High Holborn and is firmly associated with the legal profession. Because Charles Dickens hated the legal profession so vehemently it is associated in his novels with drudgery -

"the early clerk population of Somers and Camden Towns, Islington and Pentonville, are fast pouring into the City, or directing their steps towards Chancery-lane and the Inns of Court. Middle-aged men, whose annual salaries have by no means increased in the same proportion as their families, plod steadily along, apparently with no object in view but the counting-house". Sounds a bit like me.

Linuxica Jenesis, Carrie L. Hale, Jean-paul Cerny, David Sn have particularly liked this photo
