I’ve taken most of today off work, I’m hoping it’ll help me recover from the nasty cold that has developed. So, rather than process new images of the flashmob at City Hall, what happened in Covent Garden and of Parliament Square I thought I’d post a couple of images of people in the flashmob rehearsals.

It was hard work for everyone, and although I’ve not processed many of the images yet, one of the things I’ve really enjoyed is seeing the way that the flashmobbers smiled while performing, and the way that they looked at each other while dancing. New friendships have definitely been forged during the few weeks of hard practice and I’ve loved seeing how each person’s character emerged as they gained confidence in the choreography and with the people around them.

You’ve probably worked it out already, but I’m going to say it anyway. I do love my job.
