Central London at Christmas

Piccadilly Cicrus at Christmas 2003 I am starting to feel like it is Christmas. I took this picture in Piccadilly Circus earlier to try and capture the spirit of Christmas Eve in central London – but it didn’t really work. I do love the fact that everything gets covered up in preparation for the crowds at New Year. Happy Christmas!

I spent the afternoon in a quiet pub off Old Street – which is an area I’d not been to for a while. The pub was playing old vinyl albums (James Brown, Don Mclean, Shirley Bassey) which made an interesting atmosphere (when accompanied by the real fire) and also made a change from the Christmas tunes I’ve been hearing all week. Best of all, it still felt like Christmas.

On this day…
