Once again local photographer Steve Hollingshead has created a limited edition calendar celebrating the spirit of London.

Local photographer Steve Hollingshead’s 2009 London calendar

The black and white images of Londoners at traditional festivities, multi-cultural, 'alternative' and one-off events across the city have been taken during each month of this year and are presented to correspond to the same month of the coming year.

The January page shows the Lions part's annual Twelfth Night revels on Bankside where the Green Man emerges from the river to be greeted by Southwark's Mayor (Cllr Bob Skelly is visible in the corner of the image) and town crier Peter Moore.

The images range from memorial services to flashmobs and capture the variety of spectacles visible on the streets of London year-in, year-out.

April's page shows the floating replica of the Globe theatre which travelled up the Thames to celebrate Shakespeare's birthday.
