Thursday in London town





Yesterday after I'd finished some work in central London, I found myself in the midst of the student protest against increased tution fees. I got my camera out & took some shots along with the press guys with their huge zooms & multiple cameras around their necks. It was funny to see their bemused looks.
I then walked across the river to Waterloo Station to pick up a bus as transport had been disrupted due to the protests. Quite soon after it was dusk. An interesting day out in London town.

  5. I used to take that walk and see Waterloo from that very angle - so funny for me to also see it today (and thinking of John Lennon lately, of course). Beautiful captures, all. I love the light in these.

  8. Ooo, I saw this on the news over here this morning (which made my parents-in-law start talking about how peaceful japan is bla bla bla)
    You know what, I think your shots are probably a hell of a lot better than those guys with there big hefty lens. Stunning!
