It was a warm and sunny day in London, which I just arrived in London for only a week. At that time, everything to me was so fascinating. I visited the British Museum and went directly to the Great Court. Being overwhelmed with streaming tourists, I decided to document the feeling and the moment with my camera. With long exposure technique, the movement of visitors around the Great Court were perfectly drawn in the photographs.

In the Great Court, there is a food station with British desserts and beverages for the thirsty and tired people. Despite taking the symbolic panorama of the central building, I noticed the reflection on the window capturing the mihgty atmosphere and also texture of the marble walls. Around the closing time, tourists were asked to leave the building and hurry to the exit. Forwarding to the hall of entry and exit, the couple’s movement was captured bypass a still lion statue.
