Friday Photo - Cheka Kidogo (smile a little) in London

Today I'm joining with the Friday Photo over at Delicious Baby, to bring you a photo from my travels with a story behind it.

This week, I was on the South Bank in London, on one of those wettest of wet days when if it doesn't rain it pours. I love the South Bank Centre because apart from the major art exhibitions & concerts, there's always something free and interactive going on there. Through the gloom I spotted this installation of photographs and videos called Cheka Kidogo which means Smile a little in Swahili.

You're not kidding it was a dreary day! Nice bright spot, though. Thanks for sharing.

This is what I really like about London - there are many surprises to be found. It really is a global city and I always felt that strongly when I was there.

I like this photo - the contrast between light and dark is very cool.

I love this photo. Between the weather and the art installation, it captures feelings of sadness, loneliness hope all at once.
