The Kings Road is one of my favourite London street photography venues.
Stretching west from Sloan Square there are a mix of backdrops - public spaces both classical and modern, and some attractively stylish shop fronts. Any evening sunlight tends to strike in bands across the road, which can be used to highlight interesting characters, and there are plenty of fashionistas around, both upmarket and wannabe (and 'once might have been', to be honest).
It's also an art area, with the Saatchi and several good commercial galleries, and on this occasion I had been to shows of Joel Meyerowitz monochrome and early colour work at the Beetles + Huxley Gallery, and of Harry Gruyaert's amazingly lit scenes at the Michael Hoppen Gallery.
People were walking home from work, exercising their dogs and heading out for the evening. For three quarters of an hour I welcomed some low sun, but mostly the light had been rather flat.
