Photo Story: Rainy Saturday in Brixton

Brixton is a land of good smells, vibrant colors and eclectic wares. Even the dreariest of days can’t squelch the neighborhood’s vivacity.

Last Saturday I ventured out in search of fresh, market fruit. Wanting to branch out of my North London neighborhood, I traveled to Brixton to explore the markets. When I emerged from the tube it was drizzly and dreary, but the neighbourhood, which is bursting with energy and life wasn’t dampened by the storm.
