Welcome to this week’s Sunday Stills. This week the topic is ‘Night‘.

I’ve added some photos I took of various New Year’s Eves we spent in London, from 2011 – 2016. This was back in the days when I didn’t mind standing in the cold for 4 hours on the Embankment to see the Millennium Wheel light up at midnight. We had to make sure we had a place to stand by 8pm, because the police cordoned off all the roads and nobody else could get down there. Later years we booked rides on City Cruisers along the Thames, to get a closer view.

Then it was an hour’s walk back to our hotel in The Strand, fighting the crowds and police cordons.
