Southbank: the Liveliest Place in London
Twenty years ago Royal Festival Hall and its environs were pretty dreary - definitely not a destination for the family. There was no Eye and the area between the Thames and Waterloo was quite frankly dodgy. Fast forward to last Sunday and it's practically unrecognisable: so vibrant and completely brimming full of events, including street performers, restaurants, market food, a carousel, music, second-hand books and Londoners & visitors that come in their droves to enjoy a sunny afternoon. It gave me the opportunity to snap some environmental portraits of some of the more colourful characters.
