One belongs to New York instantly. One belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.

Give me such shows – give me the streets of Manhattan!

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.
Of course, I had to snap a few shots as we walked.
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.
The Royal Festival Hall foyer was cheerful and bright.
The lights outside were pretty.
We wished we’d managed to come up during the Winter Festival and vowed to make it a date for next year.
I love walking in London at night.
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.
