I love photos with lots going on in them – especially if they are happy pictures. This photograph was taken at my favourite haunt, the fountains on the South Bank, while I was waiting to see a play at the National Theatre. My theatre experience was aborted early due to what turned out to be a false alarm back home (literally – my carbon monoxide alarm went off because the batteries needed changing). But the evening wasn’t in vain as I got some good pictures of people frolicking in that lovely early evening summer light.
I love watching the families playing at the South Bank water fountain – it’s so great to see free entertainment in London that provides so much joy. Maybe one of these days I’ll don my bikini and join them!
