Dear London, Will you be my Valentine? ♥

Tuesday 14 February 2012

14 photos of iconic “Red London” If London were a colour, it would only ever be red. The city’s passionate love for crimson hues and scarlet shades is unmistakable. It’s everywhere; in the phone boxes, the buses, letterboxes, beefeaters, it's even the sun as it sets over the city's skyline. This Valentine’s Day, I just like to say, “London, I love you”. The iconic Routemaster bus (on its way down Baker Street!)
