Lumiere London 2016

This year saw Artichoke bring Lumiere to London. Following highly successful runs in Durham and Derry, the Festival of Light made it's way south, transforming King's Cross and the West End in the process and encouraging people to see the city in a new light.

I only managed a handful of pictures of a fraction of the exhibits, mainly due to crowds, and partly due to my incompetence with night shots. Even on Sunday evening I could hardly get near the phonebox-fishtank at Grosevenor Square. Still, I'm happy with the results and it was well worth the four-hour-long trek around central London to see everything.

Postscript: Seeing the lights at King's Cross also led me to discover Word On The Water, The London Bookbarge - I'd never come across this before. It's a bookshop operating out of a barge sitting on Regent's Canal!
