Before the Storm

Photo essay

by Hossein Shahidi
Last week we had been warned that very cold weather, along with snow and hail, was on its way here in London. On average, London gets around 1,400 hours of sunshine every year, about one-third of the maximum possible. Sunny days are even rarer during winter. Friday, 27 January, though was predicted to be sunny, and so it was – a rare opportunity to go around the city and see people and places in colors other than shades of grey >>> more

Thanks for your time and efforts.  Few comments:

Too many places for shopping?  Where is the Green part of London?

Churches offering dog training and aerobics, truly Jesus loves you.

Why no Taco place?

Thanks again.

I lived in london about 7 years as a student, mostly in Kilburn area, late 80's early ninties. Still go there for a visit If I happen to be in that part of world. Something I noted in my recent visits there, also portrayed in your photoes is that most of "Fish n Chip" outlest are turned into "Halal Fried chicken" and such. Still, a timeless and great place, with great people from all corners of the world, albeit ever so expensive.....

 Thank you very much for sharing.
