London Street Scenes Photos
London is one of the most diverse and exhilarating places on the planet. Live here and you’ll meet people and ideas from the world over. It's buzzing with life and has an amazing range of things to see and do as you can see also on our London Street Scenes Pictures. It is a city of history, culture, diversity and nightlife and is the focus of British politics, finance and the media. Its population is growing and is both cosmopolitan and metropolitan - with people from every country in the world making their home here. Whether you are interested in music, film, dance , theatre or comedy, London can provide an unrivalled range of entertainment and venues.
The way we experienced London Streets on 29th January 2011 when our first London Street Scenes images were taken wasn’t typical. Thousands of students staged a protest march in London against higher tuition fees and public spending cuts. The protests in London streets were noisy, but mostly peaceful as you can see also on our London Street Scenes images.
Taking pictures of protests and demonstrations can be exciting and often dangerous as well especially when a big crowd and the police are involved. It is important to know what a protest is going to be about and you need to understand the purpose of the protest in order to be able to relate the events. Taking into account the fact that against coalition proposals would see universities charge students up to £6,000 a year, or £9,000 a year in "exceptional circumstances", the anger of students protesting on 29th January 2011 is understandable and London Street Scenes photos reflect their feelings.
