London 1927

I’m sure a lot of you have already seen this video but if you haven’t you should.  It is lovely footage of London filmed in 1926 (although often noted as 1927) by  Claude Friese-Greene.  Not only is it amazing to see the cars, people, buildings and monuments but I find the colors particularly amazing and am feeling very inspired.  Click on the images below to link to the video.  Best watched on a rainy day.
