Smithfield Market, London

Grand Avenue, Smithfield Market, London

The Smithfield Meat Market is one of the largest and oldest markets in London, but at 10am on a Sunday morning it is almost deserted.

As a historical aside, the Smithfield markets was once a popular site for executions, including that of William Wallace, he of Braveheart fame. On a more personal note, this is one of the first pictures I took with my first DSLR (Canon 400D, for those interested), and it’s still one of my favourite shots.
