New Year’s Day in the West End
Continuing my series on looking through windows. I took this one outside a hotel in the west end of London on New Year’s Day. Trying to get her framed by the railings was difficult. I don’t like the window box thing in the bottom left corner but it was impossible not to get it in the shot. I wanted the railings to frame her and I think sticking my lens through the railings might have attracted her attention.
This roasted chestnut seller on Oxford Street was not busy despite there being quite a crowd on Oxford Street, shopping on New Year’s Day. While at an ice cream stand a few yards up the road, the crowd was three-deep. It wasn’t very cold but wasn’t exactly summer either and yet people wanted ice cream rather than hot chestnuts. Eh, there’s nowt so queer as folk.
