Lighting up London

Despite the dreary weather, London has been a lot brighter lately. Lumière London, the light festival lit up places across the city from 18th to 21st  January. Westminster Abbey, Carnaby Street and the Kings Cross area were all the sites of innovative light displays. For the first time this year, the piazza outside Westminster Cathedral was host to one of the installions. ‘The Rose’ was a display of thousands of recycled plastic bottles making up a beautiful illuminated window. Uniquely, the illumination was pedal powered, with members of the public pedalling fixed bikes to generate electricity.
