London is at the heart of England. By night stunning colors emerge from the London eye and River Thames and by day the city is stands out in striking red color.
The red bus is an outstanding principal icon in London, famous for its rear entrance double decker it is recognized worldwide along with the red mail box and telephone booths. The bright red color was chosen centuries ago to ensure these services stood out, this has worked well, appealing and exciting visitors from around the world.
This red theme continues on to the London underground. The central line is London?s deep level tube line that runs from east to west; it has the greatest length of any line. It is coloured red on the tube map.¬† The union jack features red tones along with red bus lanes and the red guardsmen.
Small in size but once seen together, these amazing icons add to the rich city state atmosphere and has the ability to inspire photographers.
I have collected photographs taken in London that capture the exciting red color beautifully for your inspiration.
