A last look around the market.

I love Camden - the very cobblestones of Camden Lock;

Polished smooth; first by horses hooves and steel shod cartwheels. Now by an army of tourists. And us.
There's a lot more designer gear now and the second hand stuff is a lot more classy than it used to be. But you can still pick up a record player;

I have to confess I was drawn to 'Modfather', a MOD clothes shop at the bottom of the stables. All the gear you could want and more besides.

The scooter is definitely a bit over the top for me but I did clock the cool geezer in the doorway.

This is definitely much more 'me' - understated with a very cool flame artwork.

As you can see, it's become a meeting place for men of a certain age - reliving their youth in the 1970's like me. This is mainly The Walthamstow Scooter Club, out for the day just like we were.

There's everything in Camden - here you can buy every possible item for (ouch!) body piecing;

It always seems to me that every time I come, all the stalls are different - there is a big turnover. However 'Cyberdog' has been a long term fixture - it's got loud music, dramatic lighting and some very interesting sales staff. This is the shop for clubbers and ravers - it's all fluorescent or LED stuff. So you can buy clothes that light up or belts that flash. you can glow, if that's your thing.

And then, when I was starting to collapse....it was time to go back to the real world.

And we promised each other we'd make it back, somehow.
