<Back to Go To Jail : See All Monopoly posts : On to Oxford Street>
I started my journey this week from New Scotland Yard, where last weeks visit had ended. It was a good walk through the pre-Christmas crowds. I walked back to Birdcage Walk and then through St. James Park, over the Mall, up Marlborough Road and then North to Picadilly, then East to the bottom of Regent Street. It was the just 10 days before Christmas everything was busy. As I walked north up Regent Street the light was fading giving the multiple exposure image an interesting feel. As I walked up the middle part of the Regent Street (north from Piccadilly Circus) it was really pretty dark but it gave an interesting feel for both the man standing in the passing bus and the people waiting to cross at Oxford Circus.
I really like these three images, which I hope give you a good feeling of how attractive and busy the west end is at Christmas time.

The 1st two Go To Jail images were shot on the same day as the Piccadilly images. The one of the two policeman was taken in Leicester Square and the flag reflection was from New Scotland Yard. The New Scotland Yard building was being decomissioned as the Police have now moved on. It had been a nice walk from Piccadilly, through Green Park, past Buckingham Palace and then cutting through the small roads off Birdcage Walk down to Broadway where New Scotland Yard is (was?). The third image is a composite from Pentonville Prison, taken earlier on my project. My next location will be Regent Street, so after a busy day, I called it a day and will return to my journey next week.
