Busman’s Holiday

London bus in Piccadilly Circus

London bus in Piccadilly Circus

As all holidays and breaks tend to be for a photographer.

One month ago, exactly, took this shot in London. We were walking to Westminster from Bank,the sun was setting and it was hard to keep track of a wife, two sons and a niece in the crowds.
Am actually surprised this image came out so well as I think I barely broke my stride while taking it.

It is a classic shot of Piccadilly Circus however and though there is no journalistic story attached it is a nice travel shot of London and a good memory of a good day. I like Tokyo but there is something very special about the light and atmosphere in London on a summer evening. Wish I’d had more time to explore around with my camera. maybe next time.

The walking was hard for the little people in our group so we caught one of these iconic forms of transport for part of the journey and managed to bag some front seats on the top deck. A pretty perfect day to tell the truth.

Off out into the delights of Tokyo now.
