Day #1809 Title: Piccadilly Pavements
Location: Piccadilly Circus, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm f/1.7
Notes: This evening I went to London to a lovely surprise birthday party, for a good friend of the family, at the Athenaeum Club in Piccadilly. I was too busy enjoying the do to take many pictures inside! But on the way home, I stopped near Piccadilly Circus to make a few pictures of the bright lights and wet streets.

Day #1803 Title: The Bright Lights Of London Town
Location: Oxford Street, London
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: I went to London this evening to meet friends for our Christmas dinner get together. I deliberately travelled up early so I could potter along Oxford Street and make some pictures of the Christmas lights before our rendez-vous. The lilac glow of Selfridges’ was very attractive, along with their amazing window displays. But it did remind me why I rarely set foot on Oxford Street if I can help it – let alone on a Friday evening, a fortnight before Christmas! It was heaving…

Day #1787 Title: Fulham Sunset
Location: Fulham Palace Road, London
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: I walked from Hammersmith to Fulham this evening to get my iPhone repaired at iFixPhone. They offer a great while-you-wait service. On the way I noticed a spectacular sunset playing itself out to the west, and made this quick image as a jet passed by overhead, on its way to Heathrow.

Day #1770 Title: I Want To Slide
Location: Wood Lane Underground Station
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: It’s amazing how many new things you see when you vary your routine – today I took the Hammersmith & City Line from Liverpool Street to White City instead of using the Central Line as I do normally. I was rather tempted to slide down these smoothly inviting handrails on the way out, but cowardice go the better of me!

Day #1748

Day #1748 Title: Walls Have Eyes
Location: Holborn
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: I spent a very enjoyable morning in London with a couple of friends giving some photo coaching and doing a practical shoot near the British Museum. We also had a tasty lunch nearby and then said our goodbyes. They seemed to get a lot out of it and went away buzzing with enthusiasm, which was a great feeling. The afternoon light was too good to waste so I decided to take a walk back from Holborn towards Liverpool Street, finding some geocaches on the way. I passed this arresting mural in High Holborn and couldn’t resist waiting for a passer-by to walk into the frame.

Day #1703

Day #1703 Title: Crabs
Location: Great Portland Street
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: There’s an aquatics centre on Great Portland Street, which I pass on my way to the tube each evening. Someone inside has a great sense of humour – this sign is regularly seen gracing the pavement outside. It makes me laugh way more than it probably should. I  thought the double entendre would make a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #40 – Oops!

Day #1698 Title: Underground Seepage
Location: Great Portland Street, London
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Having passed this wonderfully crusty London Underground roundel nearly every day for the past three months, today I thought it was time to stop and take a picture. It’s perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #14 – Underground.
