London – In Photos


Although London certainly did not capture our hearts, I will give it some credit for being quite photogenic.





St. Paul's Cathedral

London has some REALLY nice bridges other than this one.

Big Ben and the Parliament Buildings


St. Paul's behind the Millennium Bridge




A stroll through Camden Market searching for treasures was definitely an enjoyable afternoon.

Street performers and protests are always interesting to watch or participate in.

Finally, we unwound by visiting one of the many Heaths within the city.

    I’ve never been to London, but these photos make me feel like I am there! It looks like the city has a lot to offer. My favorite is the picture of the Heath.

      No doubt, I can’t imagine the prep. As well when he goes home at night, I wonder if he sleeps in the paint to save some time…

      Thanks so much Laura. I had to wait quite a while for some kids to move in order to get directly beneath it.

  • Great shots. How freakin’ cool is this city?

    • November 21 2011

      Well, the city overall didn’t really “do it for us”, but we did have fun with the camera!

  • Wonderful photos of London. I was a bit sad to read your negative piece on the city but enjoyed these photos of my favourite city very much.

    Stunning photos of London. I just love the park bench and tree pic.
    I’m not a huge fan of London either, for many of the reasons you have listed in another post. But it’s good as a stopover. I’m enjoying your blog and posts. Thanks. 🙂

      Thanks Jennifer! It is a required stop-over, we have to be back there in January, and maybe one of these times we’ll give it another chance. (But I kinda doubt it!)

  • November 24 2011

    Bummer that London didn’t “speak” to you, but at least you got some great shots! It’s fun looking at the photos and seeing how many of the spots we recognize. 🙂

    • November 24 2011

      Yeah, I think London “spoke” to us, we just shared some four lettered expletives – ha! (Okay, it wasn’t THAT bad)…. 🙂

  • December 3 2011

    Wow! Felt like we’re back in London. That one of the London Eye is so cool! Beautiful pictures!

    Very skillful camera work here! I love the color and unusual angles.

  • December 9 2011

    Aww, thanks – it was nice to see these pics of my old stomping grounds… You really did capture the beauty of so many places here, glad you got something out of it even though overall your London experience was just ‘Meh’ 🙂
