On Day 119, it rained, then the sun came out, then it rained again . . . all through the evening and night.

This was shot in one of the brief moments when it stopped raining.

Day 118: Regent Street (2)

Regent Street (2)

Regent Street is an example of Beaux Arts ‘façadism’, an architectural set piece designed to impress as it unfurls before the visitor. It is a medley of related styles and decoration, with each building having been designed individually but within strict guidelines. Each block was required to be designed with a continuing unifying façade to the street, regardless of the number of sub-divisions behind the main elevation, and they had to be finished in Portland stone with a uniform cornice level.

All the buildings in Regent Street are listed as being at least Grade II status and together they form the Regent Street Conservation Area.
