London lights


The cityscape I shared earlier this week was taken last Saturday.  Afterwards, we popped over to Leicester Square to see The Life of Pi at the Empire.  I really liked the lights in the square this year.

As it was a dry evening (and there haven’t been too many of those this winter), we walked back to Waterloo.


Charing Cross highwalk

Of course, I had to snap a few shots as we walked.


South Bank

I do like the South Bank and its devotion to the Arts.  There’s always something to see or do, much of it free.  A big playground for young and old, even if you haven’t got tickets for a play, concert or film.


Royal Festival Hall foyer

The Royal Festival Hall foyer was cheerful and bright.


Relaxing after a long day’s work

The lights outside were pretty.


South Bank Winter Festival lights

We wished we’d managed to come up during the Winter Festival and vowed to make it a date for next year.


Can you see the igloo?

I love walking in London at night.

City of London

Despite the portability of the Sony NEX-7 I rented over the holidays, it was good to get back to my trusty Canon.  Everything is so much more intuitive, at least to this long term Canon shooter.  This is a blend of eleven 30 sec exposures taken at dusk on Saturday.  Back to NEX images tomorrow.
