Black and white photography of london, streets of london, Piccadilly Station

I made my way to the station this morning and caught the bus to Leicester Square to meet up with a friend. The air was crisp and the sky grey yet London was as beautiful as ever.

I made my way to the station this morning and caught the bus to Leicester Square to meet up with a friend. The air was crisp and the sky grey yet London was as beautiful as ever.

I got of at Piccadilly Circus, and had flash backs of the first time I was there – back in ’07 on a hockey tour. I found myself just standing there for a moment, taking it all in. After which Google maps quickly pointed me in the direction of Leicester Square Garden.

While sitting on a bench waiting for Werner to arrive I couldn’t help but wonder about everyone passing by, eating their takeout, drinking their coffee, thinking that each person around me has their own stories, their own challenges and lives – and as we go about our days they just slide by each other like invisible tubes – a billion timelines, a billion moments all living in harmony, yet rarely intersecting. I can’t help but think about what would happen if they did?

The above photo’s were taken around Marylebone, Piccadilly Station, Leicester Square and surrounds.

  • “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” — Terry Pratchett

  • “The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That's the only lasting thing you can create. “ — Chuck Palahniuk
