The City of London is a slightly strange place at the weekend, it seems like someone shut it down and stole all the people. However, if you have a bit of a look around, you will find lots of people, predominantly male it has to be said, strutting their stuff on the fairly well abandoned streets, piazzas and public spaces of the centre of my city.

I ran into these two guys from Eastern Europe on a Saturday morning literally not a stones throw from the iconis St. Pauls Cathedral, so beloved of tourists to London. they were just doing their thing, not annoying anyone because there was no-one to annoy, and were more than happy for me to photograph them. It wasn't easy as I just had the compact cam but I hope you like the results. If you like this kind of thing, you will find a lot of skateboarders round the concrete jungle that forms the Southbank (National Theatre, area).
