Sunset in London

Posted by
Nitin (Mayenne, France) on 25 August 2014 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

“One might fancy that day, the London day, was just beginning. Like a woman who had slipped off her print dress and white apron to array herself in blue and pearls, the day changed, put off stuff, took gauze, changed to evening, and with the same sigh of exhilaration that a woman breathes, tumbling petticoats on the floor, it too shed dust, heat, colour; the traffic thinned; motor cars, tinkling, darting, succeeded the lumber of vans; and here and there among the thick foliage of the squares an intense light hung. I resign, the evening seemed to say, as it paled and faded above the battlements and prominences, moulded, pointed, of hotel, flat, and block of shops, I fade, she was beginning. I disappear, but London would have none of it, and rushed her bayonets into the sky, pinioned her, constrained her to partnership in her revelry.”

Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway

A lovely sunset in London on the only sunny day in our 4-day stay there. This one was taken from the new bridge around the Queens Walk.

The light in London is very different from the Mediterranean. However it is beautiful in your lovely backlight! Best regards, Adela
