Central London Photos during the Lockdown May 2020

Mira Demeter Photography - London during Coronavirus Lockdown in 2020 empty undeground empty streets keep 2 metres apart signs everywhere

Look at the marvellous but silent Central London Spots.

Eery, empty streets of Central London. Strange, but calming at the same time. It is visible something is going on in London!

It’s Sunday, May 17th, 2020 and yes, we are in the middle of partly released Lockdown during the Covid19 or Coronavirus Pandemic. 

London has never been this quiet. The buses are empty. The sightseeing spots are unvisited. Coffee shops, restaurants, bars, theatres are shut. 

You will only meet empty buses, cyclists and occasional walking pedestrians. 

Signs of “2 metres apart”, “Wear a mask” or “Stay at Home” are very visible, especially on the Underground. 

So I stay 2 metres apart, wear a mask and reflect – on the past, and think about the future.

How will the life resume? How will we move to the next stage? 

The reminder of busy restaurants, theatres, full trains makes me think…what will our “new normal” look like?

I got on the train in Oakwood ( I am Family Photographer based in Enfield but Oakwood is my closest underground station). 

The train took me via Green Park to Westminster. It was empty. Only a few people wearing masks sat far from each other. 

I have got off at the Westminster station and the station was empty. So was the Bridge near the Big Ben, the House of Parliament and London Eye. I walked past very empty Southbank towards the Tate Modern. I met a few runners on the Millenium Bridge heading towards the St. Paul’s Cathedral. From there I walked towards the Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, passed the Regent Street, Carnaby Street, Oxford Street – whilst meeting only a few walkers or cyclists here and there. Busses drove past quickly as there was not traffic to stop them. Train on the way back felt even emptier. 

An experience not to forget. 

And don’t forget to check out my Central London video – it is my first one, so bear with me – learning on the go! I thought it was the best way to capture the silence. 

I am a London FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER and I would be thrilled to photograph your Family in Central London, around the mentioned hotspots.

Based on my previous experience, in a few weeks all these hotspots will be full of life and people again.

Happy to discuss the location – so if you live in London or you are in London on holidays – I would be happy to capture  your family special memories.
