A little brrrit of London

A quick post tonight covering a little bit of London – a sort of zig zag photo tour in the cold and snow (but not always) as night marches on the city. The starting point is the same as two days ago – Little Venice and eventually finishes at Piccadilly Circus three hours and almost 250 photographs later. Light snow constantly fell. Transport mode consisted of a mix of walk and tube. Enjoy the pics!
