I’m not sure if these pictures and video clips will do justice to the light festival that has meant central London has ground to a halt for the last four days but I offer my clips of The Lumiere. I only visited the displays around Oxford Circus, Piccadilly and Leicester Square so missed out on the King’s Cross and West End elements. And I only ever use my Samsung Galaxy S6.

So with those caveats…

  5. What imagination. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 The videos and photos are ‘illuminating.’ (Sorry, can’t help myself). 😀 😀

    Awesome sauce. I wanted to go visit, so thanks for the photos. That Elephant made me giggle, if only it were a shark – would have been just like Back to the Future!

  7. Ah, the elephant in the room! It’s wonderful to get a little glimpse of what is going on Geoff. Of course I thought how amazing that so many people are on the streets at midnight ……… then I realised it was probably only 4.00 in the afternoon 🙂

    Nice to have look see. Missed the opportunity and it was chucking it down with all that rain at the time I might have got there. It looks magical!

    Stunning, Geoff, I would have loved to be there. Some of those installations were incredible, the woman walking, the elephant, the pink light bulbs… I think your Samsung 6 performed rather well! Certainly gave me a grand taste of the event!

    Wow–really stunning! I’m sure (aside from the crowds) it was wonderful to see this display of lights.

    It’s looks stunning, Geoff. I loved those dresses and the white one looked quite haunting, especially after talking about ghost stories in your subsequent post. I also loved the elephant but because Geoff’s mum collected elephants. I never really had the chance to get to know her so the elephants gained a special significance. We gave her a fluffy purple elephant pillow just before she died and it was with her at the end.
    We have a similar event in Sydney called Vivid. It can run into the Sydney Writer’s Festival. Like your event , the crowds can be a real turnoff.
