As it turned out the day I was in London on the 10th of November also was the day before Remembrance Day and Westminster was in full preparations for the big event. Remembrance Day basically evolved out of the mourning for the death of World War I and became a kind of Veterans Day with a lot of military parades and symbolism. Interestingly already the day before there were a lot of veterans on White Hall and I had the chance to photograph some of them.
Shot during one afternoon on the 10th of November. More information about the series in the last post.
Being on a conference trip in London the past weekend I didn’t have much spare time to enjoy the city be itself. So there was just one sunday afternoon to dive into the urban jungle of the British capital. Equipped with my camera I wandered around Westminster, Trafalgar up to Paddington where I had to catch my train. So the picture reflect these time constraints I had. There was no time to adjust and to wait for the perfect moment. I just captured the street life as it happened around me.
