    Thats an everyday scene in London, it is such a cosmopolitan city and there are probably more smokers in London than many other UK cities combined.
    We also have a fair share of drinkers, some of whom pass the time away oblivious to the real world.

    Nice images...
    Hera, how was your vacation? Reading your title I expected worse given the recent events in London (well, maybe not so recent anymore).

    More images

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I hope you enjoyed your trip to London and that you avoided the time when the "Idiots" were out to play.

    I live about 2hrs from London so don't visit that often, I have always found it a great place for street shots but alas, the Police & Secuity men who look after many areas have become very anal over the past year and have challenged many people with cameras.

    I trust you were able to get some interesting images without hassle, and I for one look forwards to seeing the results on here.

    Good luck,
    Ian
     
  5. We hosted a travel Blog. You can visit it. We did not get affected by the riots.

    Not a London smoker, but a smoker none the less..... I had to include him in this link.

    Thanks for the kind comments on my stogie guy, appreciated. Here is another, but more refined and elegant one from Spitalfields Market in London
