Water in the Dark

In the dark the river looks thick and viscous, solid almost. Light reflecting from the London Eye - huge with blue light the pods are almost invisible against the black sky. Boats sit still on the surface waves undulate around them.

By contrast the fountains in Trafalgar Square dance in the light, spray wafting in the wind, wetting the stone slabs to the south. Light frippery, vapourous.
