Heading across Kensington Gardens to a Halloween Party? Well no, because this picture was taken a week before the event. Yes, I should have asked but what if she had been a real witch and he a real devil? From my ongoing Londoner's Diary book project.
The roar of Piccadilly a few hundred yards to his right and the pomp of Buckingham Palace to his left, but this man found a moment of peace and solitude amid the Autumn colours of Green Park that lies between the two. This is a picture from my ongoing Londoner's Diary book project.
Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, in Trafalgar Square last Sunday. It's a celebration of light over darkness, good over evil and hope over despair. I must confess I felt the BBC had hijacked the event and turned it into a rock concert, until these dancers appeared with a display of the Indian culture I'd hoped and expected to see.
Yesterday in Trafalgar Square, and A Taste of Africa celebrated the music, culture and food of this colourful group of nations. Most of the music came from a rather remote stage but this dancer and her drummers chose to perform among the crowd....so much more fun for them and for us!
