PHOTOS OF THE DAY: London In The Puddles
June 10, 2012

All right, it's a cliché that it rains all the time in Britain ... But let's face it, it does rain a lot. Photographer Gavin Hammond has taken advantage of the wet weather in this series of pictures of London, as seen through puddles.

He told the Telegraph the idea came to him after his bicycle was stolen: "I was walking into town along the South Bank for once rather than pedaling past it in a hurry. It began to rain ... and a large flock of tourists were blocking my way. I hate to be in a crowd so I stared at my feet as I waited for them to pass. And lo! A beautiful reflection of one of the gondolas emerged from a puddle".

Check out some of the pics below, and visit Gavin's site for more of his work:
