Piccadilly Circus’ Silence.

As everyone went about their day in Piccadilly Circus, I couldn’t help but notice the silence filling the place because everyone took a moment to remember HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.

It’s not often I see a moment of silence in a thriving place like this, but it proves how powerful someone’s death can have on everyone, especially when a member of the Royal Family has passed away.

The sunny weather held up, and there was a breeze that compensated the landscape, all the while it made Piccadilly Circus fall silent, which is a first for this place and it’s a rare moment in history to see a place usually full of people in silence to remember and pay tribute to a member of the Royal Family while marking the end of a remarkable era for the Royal Family.

Capturing a photo like this is a memory because it’s a reflection of that day.

It’s also a piece of history as well as I wanted to make sure to capture a photo of this moment to make sure it’s a piece of history everyone can look back on in years to come, especially for the future generations after us who want to learn about the past, royalty and the places we all visit that consist of anyone famous who has visited and even performed here and anywhere in London.
