The aftermath from last weeks fires that broke out over on Wanstead Flats. The BBC reported that over 220 fire fighters tackled the blaze while the Evening Standard claimed that 100 hectares of grass were alight with 40 fire engines at the scene. I took a stroll up there, post fire and with the dry grass and yet another day hitting the 30c mark. It did feel like you were stepping into a safari park.

We say goodbye to Photographer and Photojournalist Abbas, who has left us with a stunning 60-year photographic career, including a 27 year stint at the Magnum photo agency. Abbas's career has seen him cover the Vietnam war and the Iranian Revolution where he told those who wanted to stop him from shooting that: “This is for history.” You can find out more about Abbas at Magum photos and here’s a few images from Abbas’s portfolio.
