Walthamstow

When: All year long, even Christmas and New Years Day. I got a scholarship for traveling to the UK and Ireland and had to write a thesis about it. The most surprising part of the journey was a short trip to Walthamstow. I wanted to experience a bit of the album Park-life by Blur. They grew up around the corner in Hackney and so the picture on the album shows two dogs racing.

They do. Many times a day in the Greyhound stadium of the Millennium in Walthamstow. What ever that means. And the fellow english men come before and after their work and in between to set bets on the races. Fantastically awkward for a lomographer from the mainland I enjoyed the place very much and bought a T-shirt, which I was looking for since ages…..
