For today´s post, I thought I would show you a bit of London in pictures. They depict some wonderfully colourful, funny and weird items and situations at different places and times throughout the year, over the years. Hope you enjoy.
A touch of Hindi culture in. Diwali festival, Trafalgar Square.
China in London. My friend Lisa does the best Chinese cooking I have ever tried!
Now, who would have thought that London was going to be so icy – again! I took this picture from my window just a few weeks ago. The transport chaos that usually follows just a few leaves falling on the ground was…
One of the good things about the icy-cold weather was this ice sculpting festival in the Docklands at the end of last year. Funny enough, some of the sculptures were melting a bit, while attendees were freezing by the minute!
Back in town now. This is the sculpture on the fourth plimpton in Trafalgar Square. Before this one, there was the bust of a disabled, pregnant lady who became a bit of a celeb for a while.
Just walking behind main roads, I have come across some really nice little squares with lovely sculptures or works of art. This one is near Piccadilly.
Strange sculptures appear everywhere. I have found out that animals, and cows, tend to be the most numerous. I will publish some pics I have taken in Camden Town in another entry.
You can also find eggs!! These eggs are part of a street exhibition/ contest which is taking place here ahead of Easter.
Some graffitti for your eyes only. These pics were taken in Brick Lane and in the tunnels near the Old Vic, where cool underground exhibitions take place.
Some little lovely bunnies near Spitalfields market.
Hurray? The Lord Mayor exhibition ends with some fireworks.
