London in the rain from a double decker bus

I don’t actually run around the streets of London swinging an umbrella and singing in the rain, but I do rather like inclement weather.

Most of my favourite songs go on about the rain or snow, and I’m never happier than when I’m stomping through thick snow in the countryside, or going to sleep to the sound of the howling wind and thundering rain outside.

Here’s a few views taken from the top floor of a double decker as it swept through central London in a September rainstorm a few years ago.

Heading down Regent Street under a dark September sky.
