Gallery: favourite city life photos of 2021

My travels may have been somewhat curtailed in 2021 but I did manage to visit two beautiful cities abroad. One, Paris, is well known to me (this was my seventh visit, I think), while the other, Seville, was new. They proved a rich source of photos, as did my home city of London.

For Tina’s Lens Artists challenge this week I am posting a series of galleries, each on a different theme and with a selection of my favourite images taken in the past year. Some have featured in previous posts, many have not.

My chosen themes reflect some of my favourite subjects for photography:

City life

As well as the visits to Paris and Seville, and photos taken at home in London, my selection for this theme also covers visits to Newcastle and Liverpool, and a day trip to Brighton. The featured image was taken on a cloudy day in May, on the South Bank of the Thames in London, where a street entertainer was blowing giant bubbles for passing children. The remaining shots, below, are all in chronological order.
