Life is never dull. In a city, it is never slow either. Everything moves about with haste. We walk fast, drive fast, eat fast, live fast. Hastily we move through the day into the night and even then nothing appears to slow down.
It’s even worse at this time of year, with the pressure of the Christmas season demanding yet more from our purses and ourselves. Shops are open later – even 24hrs – all in an attempt to get more from us.
The traffic never seems to stop. The roads never empty.
I took this photo tonight as I queued at traffic lights. I know the shot is blurred but it implies action and movement, something that is non-stop at this time of year.
