Alone – even in a crowd

Continuing my theme on how Londoners spend a lot of their time alone – whether it’s on the tube, in a coffee shop or cafe or on the street. We might be on the way to work or somewhere else, taking a break, waiting for someone, or just spending time on our own. Even when we are in close proximity to other people, we can be alone.

    1. That’s true. Though if you don’t get on with your neighbours, a small community can be difficult. There’s less gossip about people’s personal lives in a city than in a village.

    1. Thanks Gerry. I took that one on October 30th in Berwick St, Soho. They were queuing to get into a fancy dress shop to get costumes go Halloween. It was one out, one in because the shop was so popular!
