Photographer's Note

After the fireworks we walked around London and this photo is a photo from Picadilly Circus.
--------------------------------------->
Piccadilly Circus is considered the most visited site in London and is a hub of activity from morning to night. The London equivalent of Times Square, Piccadilly Circus is formed by the junction of five streets and is one of the busiest traffic circles in the world. People crowd around the steps of the statue known as Eros, the Greek God of Love (but really meant to be the angel of charity), erected in 1892 as a memorial to the Earl of Shaftsbury, the Victorian philanthropist.

Piccadilly Circus is a good place to meet before heading off to eat, shop or go to area theaters. Soho isn’t too far a walk from here and neither is Trafalgar Square. The fashionable stores of Carnaby Street are also nearby. The area is quite a sight in the evening, with colorful and brightly lit advertising signs illuminating the area, high above the streets.
