Night in Shoreditch (2)

Post-shoot, post-dinner with the team, I strolled back from Brick Lane along Old Street, heading back to my hotel in Holborn. The large roundabout where the A501 intersects Old St. was busy with pedestrians, most heading out in gaggles to nearby clubs. This underpass, with its dramatic lighting, caught my eye: though an entrance to a tunnel, it was in fact brighter than the sidewalk on which I stood. Naturally that’s a requirement for an underpass that the city expects will be used by residents with confidence. No one wants to descend into the dark.
