Empty London on Christmas morning (full set). A couple of years ago I had the idea that it might be fun to take photos of London without humans – yes, I was motivated by that scene in Westminster from 28 Days Later. Unfortunately, not being a film director I was not really in the position to have half of London sealed off for photos – but realised that on Xmas morning there could be an opportunity. Past photos from 2010 and from 2008. [more inside]
"The thing is, we're in Central London and we have to be really careful these days. I like your shots though... very nice." Dave Gorman's ever-so-slightly surreal Flickr adventure.
Flickr is making it fairly easy to find imagery and stories (cont'd) of the London 7/7 transit bombings. Some are quite frightening. The responses from non-Londoners range from poignant to somber to familiar favorites from days gone by. Check out Flickr's tags for the last 24 hours - just click on one and go exploring for the pictures of the day you won't see on any media outlet.
