London photos: Westminster Abbey transformed at Lumiere London


Two weekends back, London played host to an absolutely marvelous festival of lights called Lumiere London. For four evenings, some of the most famous areas of Central London turned off their usual lighting and let special art installations incorporating light illuminate the night.

Westminster Abbey was completely transformed with light, which was continuously changing color.


Even more amazingly, the facade of the structure — which is actually a uniform stone color — looked as if it has been painted.


I don’t know how the artist got so precise with the color.

I’m posting my photos from Lumiere London until I run out. Use the “Lumiere London” tag to find the other posts in this series.

    Wowzer! I bet the artist was inspired by the fact that all cathedrals used to have the stone figures painted!
