London videos: Circus of Light at Lumiere London

circuslumiere1

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.

In the big plaza called Granary Square, near King’s Cross, the Circus of Light was projected onto a former warehouse turned restaurants, art galleries, and other examples of urban renewal.
