Christmas Day in London: Photographs of the City’s Empty Streets

While the holidays are full of hustle and bustle, Christmas day is quite the opposite. The empty streets are still, populated by silent skyscrapers and frozen Ferris wheels. The busy avenues are empty. The only creatures moving are squirrels and birds. Photographer Metin Sönmez wandered the streets of London on Christmas Day, documenting the tranquility of the vacant city after the holiday chaos.
