Bubbly St Paul’s and other London wanderings

Hello everyone! We’re excited to share with you a few photos today which are hopefully just a little bit different… We were happy with the colours we achieved amongst the rather grey skies.

We planned a festive wander around some rather famous London landmarks. We aimed to take in some of the traditional Christmas markets, but ended up more fascinated by some of the photo opportunities we discovered.

St. Paul's

We enjoyed how the dramatic, austere, grey St Paul’s (above) was brilliantly offset by this fun bubble (below) created by a riverbank entertainer who was entrancing a large group of children, as well as us!

Playing with monochrome settings, this fiercely geometric shot of the Millennium Bridge is effective in black and white:

As the sun began to set, it cast St Paul’s in brilliant technicolour. We love how it contrasts with the vibrant building in front of it – not a typical angle of this famous landmark!

We then headed down to More London Riverside (yes, we’ve been here before, but it’s very photogenic!) and found their Christmas tree, set rather dramatically against the fabulous Tower Bridge.

To end our day, we went to see Les Misérables – iconic, and certain people had never seen it [I’d seen the film, but not the musical]! Obviously we couldn’t photograph the performance, which was moving and brilliantly done, but there was a rather stunning chandelier in the theatre.

We walked back down Piccadilly to the tube, and thought the Ritz was looking rather smartly dressed for Christmas.

A lovely Christmassy day – we hope you all had a fantastic time!
