To be more accurate, this is a “ride by”. Brick Lane, a veritable spinal column supporting ribs of street art in its side-streets has been closed to through traffic. Pedestrianised is perhaps too strong a word for the transformation but Indian curry houses have expanded outdoors sending furniture, serving waiters and hustling barkers onto the pavements. A colourful and beautifully fragrant sense of cafe life has descended onto the street. Cyclists and pedestrians roam where fume belching vehicles once ruled and we were able to capture a sense of walkers and cyclists enjoying this new found freedom against a backdrop of wonderful street art.
