This picture was taken early one foggy morning in London, when the sky was almost completely white, and the top of Nelson’s Column seemed to fade into the mist…
Even early on a cold, foggy winter morning, there are people wandering amongst the lions and fountains of Trafalgar Square.
I was away from the internet on Remembrance Day, so consider this a belated tribute.
A few years ago I was in London for Remembrance Day, so I decided to go to the Remembrance Sunday wreath laying and march. Given what I’d heard about the crowds, I headed over there early. On the way, I took this photo of the early morning light in Trafalgar Square. It wasn’t until I got home that I noticed the tiny figures of two veterans, almost lost among the bollards, preparing their poppies for the parade.
