Summer at the Southbank

Hi all,

London and most of Europe have been blessed with some long and sunny days. Here are some pictures from a little walk we did on a very warm and wonderful summer evening:

We started from Summerset House, crossed Waterloo Bridge, walked around Southbank Centre for a little while, had a bite at Wahaca and then headed east along the river towards London Bridge. Stopped at the Tate Modern just in time for some sunset shots (open until 9:30pm on weekends, use the rear entrance at the gift shot and take the lifts on the left to go straight to the roof terrace on the 10th floor). Went back down to the Millennium Bridge for some pictures of St. Pauls. Strolled through the streets of Borough for a little while and then took the tube back home from London Bridge Station.

Southbank & Covent Garden

Southbank and Covent Garden are probably my favourite spots when it comes to Street Photography in London. They are incredible vibrant, there are always street artists performing (the ones that are actually fun and don't try to nick you wallet), there are little markets like the book sale below Waterloo Bridge and there are a lot of little cafes in case you get thirsty.   

Festival of Love

Some pics from the crazy fountain at the Festival of Love at the Southbank London. Great fun on hot days. (Click on the thumbnails for fullscreen versions)
