Pigeons, bin bags and giant teddy bears: 11 candid photos of London


Forget polished, perfectly filtered snaps of London’s skyline, these snaps from photography symposium Street London capture London in all its glory – from witty posters and colourful street art to commuters on the tube and a guy carrying a giant teddy bear. Oh, and there's a pigeon in a puffa coat. You’re welcome.

Having a crap day? Just rest your head on a wall of graffiti. We’ve all been there.

Take that, Southwark council.

Huge present for a small child... or a grown man who’s really into giant bears? You decide.

We'll just leave this here.
