The Friday Photo Project | 3 sides of London
No matter how far or how often we travel, London will always be home. There is a buzz in the air that keeps us invigorated and alive. Add the fact that it’s the best place in the world for the arts and you get two happy travel bloggers. The other thing I love about London is the many sides the city has. I have titled this blog post the 3 sides of London but I could have easily added many more. From the bigwigs in The City to dealers and geezers by the locks of Camden, London has many faces. Here are 3 I came across on a walk last autumn.
An old school Ice-Cream van with the Houses of Parliament in the background. This shot captures Old London perfectly. I am still awed when I pass these iconic buildings even after living in the city for 16 years.
Just down the road from the first shot, this one was taken. Karen said the image looks like a building site and that’s what I wanted to convey. London is always reinventing itself. It’s one of the reasons why I have been here so long. Every weekend is different because there is always so much change.
My favourite side of London is the quirky side. You can be whoever you want to be in London. I once dressed as a Jedi to go to a fancy dress party. Not one person on the tube looked up. On the contrary, when I walked across the concourse at Victoria station, two men come up to me, kneeled down and said “Oh Jedi, finally you have come”! It was a Friday night so maybe they had, had a few! In the end of the day, we have seen it all in this crazy city and that’s why we call it home.
