West End Boy

By coincidence, I’ve been a-boozing in the West End two nights in a row. Yesterday in Fitzrovia (again) and today in Covent Garden. I seem to be becoming slowly obsessed with Fitzrovia. I’ve been taking some photos around there in preparation for a fairly large entry coming soon, I’m afraid none of which will show up here. However, I did take a number of other random photos which don’t really fit into any category.
