Shortcut in Piccadilly Circus by 

(AS IS, Finepix F31fd)
Shot from just off-Piccadilly Circus, past Trocadero, towards Haymarket (Central London). I noticed the late-afternoon sun shining on the three graces, and couldn’t resist taking a picture. I tried to zoom on the detail (especially the reflection on the dome), bus got in the way…

    I was here once, it is so wonderful to see it again. This is a beautiful shot, the warm sunlight is wonderful.

  • Thank you, I’m very glad you like it – thanks for making it a favourite of yours. It was really a moment of ‘last light’ before the sun was hidden behind the tall buildings before sunset (the joys of living in the city: you get two sunsets if you move fast from the centre to the suburbs, and you get a long period of dusk :-) ).

    Wow – great – one thing, I didn’t realise how close Birmingham was to London, and how large was Greater Manchester……have to visit one day…

  • It all depends on the scale of the map and how far you are when you’re looking at it :-) I’m glad you like the picture, thanks for having a look

    Excellent perspective and great warmth to the light

  • You know how it is, some moments you just have to take the camera out and shoot :-) Many thanks, I appreciate your visit, comments and compliments.

    Perfectly captures the feel of the location, really nice composition!

  • Thank you :-] One of those moments when, in a rush to get somewhere, I just stop one moment and take a picture of something I see often, just to show others what I see – I’m glad I managed to capture it. Thanks again
