Trafalgar Square, in all its emptiness, with the dome of the National Gallery and the beautiful spire of St. Martin in the Fields.

The West End in all its fullness

The curtain at the theatre last night, Wyndham’s, one of the grand old theatres of the West End, quite lovely, even if the play wasn’t.
