Feeling New Years Eve on Thames

It's New Years Eve ,two hours till 2011. We get off at Holborn Underground Station and marching towards Enbankement we follow the crowd to Thames shore. We meddle into scrimmage at the entrance point and question if it was a better idea to stay home this night.
We are now on Waterloo Bridge along with several thousand of people, a mix of all kind of nationalities.
Two Chinese couples sit quietly in front of us. Behind us a group of about six cheerful schoolgirls make noise and collide bottles attracting passers eyes.

The Savoy Hotel looks very beautiful tonight tonight and I can dare to imagine what view have the tourists from theirs high balconies.

Time passed slowly enough but soon we'll see e the much awaited fireworks. And here it is a short sample of them.

Everyone is with the camera up in the air to capture the moment.

Lots of kisses and hugs and Happy New Year!'s compose the spirit of these special night.

A big part of the crowd rushes to leave and continue the party elsewhere and everybody seems to be very happy about the fireworks and the time spent on the bridge.

No matter what some of them want to be everytime the first to leave the place and choose to jump the fence.Very determined people.

The party continues on the streets.

The nearest tube station are closed so we choose to walk along with the crowd to the next stations available.We are a little bit tired but this is the best choise. It is also a good opportunity to take some nice photos and to capture the fascination of the moment.



Unfortunately after the big fun on the streets have remained very much mess , also to celebrate the beginning of a new year.


Happy New Year to everyone!
