Strange to be living in NYC during hurricane Sandy.
Some amazing photos have emerged, it's hard to imagine
this photo was taken in Queens, it reminds me more of India.

During the late 1800s and early 1900s my family were merchants in London's Billingsgate market. I thought it was about time I got down there to see what the modern day Billingsgate was all about. Alarm set for 5am and wellies at the ready, I spent a morning photographing the traders and porters as they went about their business.
