what the commuter saw

It is my last day at work before Christmas
so I thought I would share my December photos.

DECEMBER

I set off in the dark
but I arrive at sunrise.


9 December
Royal Festival Hall from the Jubilee Bridge


5 December
Westminster Bridge


12 December
London Eye from the Embankment

I am becoming familiar with my route,
aware of the light, the people who walk,
presence and absence of the normal.


11 December
Waterloo Bridge in the fog.


16 December
Nelson's Column, Trafalgar Square


9 December
Hawk Patrol, Trafalgar Square


9 December
St. Martin-in-the-Fields, landmark church, centre for the homeless

London is ready for Christmas:
decorated, sparkling and busy.


2 December
Christmas Tree - a gift of the people of Norway, Trafalgar Square


2 December
Southbank Centre

It is dark as I walk home
and the great buildings lining the river are lit up.
I wonder sometimes if I will ever tire of the sight.
I hope not.

  4. The walk across the river (Waterloo Bridge) in the dark, with the lights of the city both sides ... my favourite walk in the world!

  9. Wow -- I love all of these! But maybe especially the one of Waterloo Bridge. And the tree.
