London Sleeping
Took a walk around London last night at about 2.30am, was amazing to see the city in the dead of night, with almost nobody else around. Took this from the Golden Jubilee footbridge, the London Eye to the left of the picture and the clock face of Big Ben to the right. At about 4am the city started to come alive again, the first few people on their way to work walking along the Embankment, the deliveries to the shops at the train stations, and a gradual increase in the amount of traffic on the roads. Arrived at Waterloo to go home a few hours before the station opened, and so had to spend the few hours in between in the St Thomas’ Hospital cafe, which seemed to be the only place that just continued on as normal throughout the night. Caught the train back to Putney at 5.30am, in time to see the deliveries of the day’s papers to the station, and the first few commuters from that station. Definitely going to do this again soon, and get some more photos of the city at night.
