Shaftesbury Avenue, off Piccadilly Circus

Another West London cityscape. It is hard to get a clear view across any angle of Piccadilly Circle. Buses, cars, people. It’s a beehive. You have to be patient, or lucky.

A pub? In London?

Yep! Some of these typical British places are just awesome. Case in point: this mid 19th Century building houses The Mitre, which ensures everybody’s stomach is full and everyone’s whistle is kept lubricated. I just love buildings like this.

One Way Street in West London

Can’t recall where I was exactly in West London. That’s what happens sometimes on walkabouts. I just know I was stricken by the diffused light brightening the facades on the street, as if a giant soft box had been used to set the stage for my enjoyment. I obliged.

En route towards Piccadilly Circus

On a walkabout on Shaftesbury Avenue, in London’s West End, which is also the City of Westminster, towards Piccadilly Circus. The sun was behind me and the sky and buildings created a nice contrast. I love downtown views with people going about their business. I find details and elements I would not normally have come up with.

Clovelly – Very old fishing village in the UK

Low tide, obviously. I loved the angle. Only problem was I got there right before dusk. I have a thing with this time of day! It is a magical hour, but not the best for image making…
