Fade out

All of the images I’m displaying this week were from my last photo outing of 2014 where I met up with Ollie, Olly and Adrian for a few hours walking around London.

I made the mistake of agreeing to meet people at Westminster bridge, thinking that the time between Christmas and New Year may be pretty quiet and we would benefit from seeing a few tourists and dog walkers and not much else down there. Alas not, it was the busiest I had ever seen it and attempting to cross by the London Dungeons entrance was impossible.

Rather than walking down this busy way again we decided to go instead via the wonderful Leake Street which is a great spot to visit if you like graffiti. As a legal spray zone it’s always sure to brighten up the bleakest of days with the vibrant artwork on display…and if you like the smell of paint fumes you’re likely to get a fix here 🙂

I grabbed a shot of this guy as he walked through the tunnel using my 70-200mm.
