Super pictures. The drinking culture is something to be admired in my oppinion because although the brits have a reputation the experience is great. Its not all beer louts. Infact it can be quite sophisticated on the streets and its lively.

Oh God... Old Compton St.

The amount of drug induced comas I've nearly slipped into around there would scar any A&E worker.

And Vauxhall... fun times.

Superb work, you've really managed to capture London's fun, Bohemian side. These pictures show that it's the people who make this city great.

I was really surprised to see the visit PA poster. Tax free shopping and bears.

One thing that makes London so different than say NYC is the cross section of international people. I met people from Malaysia, Qatar, New Zealand, Argentina and the Canary Islands at Vauxhall on a dreary but festive Sunday afternoon all there to see a wild drag show.

Also, the Muslim school children in Tube stops all were wearing their Muslim attire. In NYC immigrants seem more "Americanized". I hope that makes sense. It is more of a mosaic city than a melting pot. The same goes for Toronto.
