    how about east end markets, esp. colourful textiles etc. assuming you mean patterns as in textures as well? as with anywhere in the city, keep an eye out for snatch thieves.

    other ideas ...
    • millennium bridge, tate modern, st pauls – contrast between new and old
    • macro shots of nature
    • monument of the great fire of london, at Monument tube station. its spiral stairs look like inside of a shell
    • cobblestones at covent garden esp when sun is low, in the evening, long shadows of people walking ...

    good luck, and post some mini piccys will ya ...

    thanks kippy gonna go on the weekend to st pauls and millenium bridge completly forgot about them thanks once again rep left. yer sure ill post the good ones online.

    I think its better when you go off the beaten track, or so to say.
    For example if there is a local scrap heap, try there.
    Patterns are everywhere and you don't need to go to a nice place to take them.
    If you go to the well known places, everyone ends up with the same shots. Boring.
    Take some unusual photos and good luck!

    Battersea Power Station
    Walkways around Waterloo Station
    Try and find an area near Waterloo Station where you can see all the railway lines. (You could also try Clapham Junction for this)
    Victoria Bus and Coach Station.
    Walk along the Embankment, you should get some excellent stuff if you keep your eyes and mind open.
    Walk around the centre of the City area (looking upwards)
    Never been up in the London EYE but my guess would be you could get something good up there as well as the Eye itself from different angles.
    Natural History Museum is a fine building where with a bit of imagination you should get some good stuff.

    It's an endless list really.
    I hope you get some great stuff and would also love to see some on here.

    Best of luck.

    mate go down Greenwich (university), plus theres some cool derelict places there , check out some pics from my friend: flickr.com/pho…34/

    Also, East London, for black and white pics Brik Lane is a must. For new and old shots go to Aldgate and Frenchurch st, take a picture of the gherkin and Loyds, you can get excellent new vs old shots .

    For night shot the south bank and tower bridge

    happy shooting

    All good stuff from smokeMonkey !

    Add Petticoat Lane first thing Sunday morning for all the stalls . There are some places where you can get above the stalls to shoot.

    just wait for the frost

    Off Oxford street, down one of the side streets theres this candle stick shop, its the most incredible place ever for photos, its three storys high and pilled high with hundreds of candle stick holders, chandlers etc. The guy that owns it is pretty friendly so will be happy to let you wander about with camera.

    I cant exactly remeber which street it is, but its on the right hand side if you walked from oxford cirus - tottenham court. From memory its closer to tottenham court road. Also around those back streets are awesome textiles shops, with rolls and rolls of fabrics which in themselves are impressive.

    hope this helps...
