Short Takes — London 2021

Here’s a grab bag of thoughts and images from this visit, still underway.

This first one may not be too obvious, but I was struck by the juxtaposition of the chap with the Hula Hoop, on the left, opposite the poster for Shen Yun. (18-10-2021).

Mary Poppins in Leicester Square
