I’ve just got back from the Cirque Du Soleil – Totem press shoot at Liverpool Street Station, London. It involved a handful of the cast, in full attire, monkeying around and interacting with the public and actors. I love how little attention Londoners give to a man in a monkey suit prancing around beside them. The characters staged the famous March of Progress pose, as seen above, and had great fun stealing copies of The Metro from passers by and generally causing a great big scene. There were also people on hand to give out free Totem branded Oyster Card holders. (more…)
Spotted whilst on a walk along the Grand Union Canal in London. I liked how the gas holders had turned rusty giving them an earthy colour whilst surrounded by their metal frames. Also, the barbed wire fence is set up to keep people in, as opposed to keeping them out.
This is one of the entrance buildings to Euston Train Station in London. It lists the places you could go to by train when they were built. This picture shows a couple of those destinations. I’ve been out of London for a couple of days and took this whilst waiting for a bus to finally go home.
I went into the city with my girlfriend this evening and took in the best that London has to offer in the evening. Her Majesty’s Theatre in Haymarket is a beautiful building but I particularly like the very top of it and how the three lights create such a uniform pattern.
I took this photo from Waterloo Bridge looking west. It was the only time I saw the sun all day, and it was just vanishing behind a building. I really love the architecture in London. All too often you find yourself without any time to really look at the wonderful buildings so I try to make time to get out and explore, with my camera, the sights of London.
Whilst I was out I decided I might as well go for a walk. Starting in Holborn where I had met my girlfriend I walked down to Waterloo Bridge then went along the Southbank to Westminster Bridge. Back up along Whitehall to Trafalgar Square and then home from Charing Cross. Below is a little gallery of other pictures I took today.
