Deptford — Art or Odd ?


In south-east London, just before the Thames River reaches to Greenwich,

it is the Deptford.  Unlike the posh Greenwich, this part of Lewisham is

rather poor area = hence lots of artists (I guess, rather poor artists) are

living in this area =  And it creating very distinctive atmosphere here

though, I wouldn’t necessary say it is artistic, but definitely it is odd.  🙂


Next to the Deptford open market, the Albany Theatre is

one of the center of the Community Art activity.


But half of the market is a Flea Market = or some might say junk heap.

Therefore, to distinguish Deptford’s  “distinctiveness” = whether it is

art or junk is a difficult task.  😀  Photo above left is — can you guess,

it’s a tattoo shop !


The area having quite a number of Vietnamese population hence

many Chinese-Vietnamese restaurant as well. 


And number of Charity shops (or junk shop). —– Important point is,

they were sold to the grown-ups, not to the children.


On the table, Permanent flower in a glass jar = What a great idea !

—– I’m wondering, who got a courage to cut a hair there ?

—– or the population here loves a joke so much ?

And so-called Laughing Buddha (Chinese Putai = Taoism figure, nothing

to do with Buddhism) must be a warning of obese in the restaurant.  🙂 


They are the Wedding cake kind ! = What a fantastic idea again !


So, where ever you go, ART (sort) is everywhere.


This is what Deptford is !

(Photo Right is, the entrance to the Site-office of construction site !

= not a joke ! )
