Yesterday we visited London, the main purpose of which was to watch the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on (and lose to) the Chicago Bears at Wembley. As we always do when visiting the capital, we took the train and then did a bit of the old tourist thing until game time.
London is not my favourite place in the world.
Okay, London's good for photographers but that can't offset its really annoying problems, those being the woeful inability to get a decent mobile phone signal anywhere (even 1G would have been nice) and the odd opening hours of businesses, specifically pubs. A city packed with tourists and pubs that stay closed on Sunday or only open for about 5 hours is baffling to me. I guess I'm spoilt in Portsmouth.
But photographs: yes, London has some great architecture (pictures to come in an album in the next day or so) and, of course, it puts on great sporting spectacles too (pictures to come in an album in the next day or so too) and it's got a large number of interesting people who are used to seeing oddballs with cameras all the time. Good news for me.
I spotted the people in this picture somewhere between the Soho and Chinatown areas (those and Covent Garden are my favourite parts of London); they were engrossed with trying out their variety of ice creams and never noticed me standing there waiting for just this shot.
