I miss the London I knew


I took this shot on 27th February in Soho, London.

I remember seeing this guy standing in the middle of a busy street.

He was so concentrated on his phone that he did not know I took this.

If you look closely, you will see a woman smoking her cigarette, another one appearing to be in deep thoughts, and a man drinking a pint on his own.

I miss this moment. I miss the London I knew.

The other day when I went for a walk by myself, I felt emotional seeing the usual busy street so empty and so lifeless.

It seemed unreal.

I avoided people on the same footpath by choosing a different street or moving to the other side of the road.

I have always been an introvert but this felt like the ultimate form of antisocial behaviour.

The sun was beaming, and it felt like I was dreaming.

The vision of London slowly fades in front of me, and there is nothing I can do about it.
