Bent and twisted

Juggler entertains the passers by at Covent Garden

Dodging people on the streets of London could be made into an Olympic sport. It reminded me of the asteroid field scene in the film The Empire strikes back ; you had to dodge and weave, in, out and around the asteroid field of people moving along the street. Covent Garden was one of the busiest areas and there, to entertain the crowds, were people like this juggler.

The diversity of talent around Covent Garden was astounding but the creativity was especially impressive on the market stalls. Many of the stalls sold hand crafted items like jewellery, some of which were made from ordinary cutlery, bent and twisted to form beautifully ornate bracelets.

More images from the London trip will be posted every day this week.
