Wednesday Whim - London in Puddles

all images via Gavin Hammond (via My Modern Met)

I often dream about being able to travel all over the world, and one of those spots is London, England. It's a spot I associate with culture, style and of course royalty. It's also a spot that is often rainy and London-based photographer, Gavin Hammond, has captured the beauty of his city through the puddles on the street. 

The photos are ethereal, surreal, dreamy, haunting and most of all, beautiful. In my own attempt at being creative, I have tried to capture scenes I've seen in puddles but I have failed. The photos come out muddy or I'm unable to capture the beauty of what I see. So I'm in complete awe of these photos and how stunning they are. These are just some photos in a series available at Gavin Hammond's Tumblr site.

What do you think? Have you been to London? Do you think these photos capture the beauty?
