Lovely London

Oh lovely London! There is no place quite like it. Last November I finally got to explore the charm of England’s capital city. Of course, being on the island, we were greeted with chilly rains and grey, monotone skies. But that was to be expected and it certainly did not dampen my spirits about being in the land of Shakespeare and the Beatles!

While, there were moments during the trip when the sun did shine through, they didn’t last long and the clouds were back again. But mostly, this was a good thing, keeping harsh shadows out for my images.

We did most of the touristy stops, Parliament (which I had to go back and capture on another day since our first outing there was washed out by hard rain), Tower of London, St. Paul’s, Westminster, Tower Bridge, etc. But what I wanted mostly was to capture the eclectic energy of the city. The variety of architecture, the variety of cultures and people was quite exciting to me. I instantly felt comfortably at home in this place. I could explore for days and never get tired of it. If only there was the time! Time to see more pubs, more street art and more fashion….I can’t wait to get back there.

I’ve since picked out my fave images from the trip, but in doing so, realized how much more I would’ve liked to capture. I suppose that’ll be for next time. Until then….

Below are a few of the images I captured from lovely London…

    Your photographs are really nice, I like your style!

    If I may point out something? The text is very hard to read because it is rather small. I think one size bigger would be better. I could imagine you lose readers because they can’t read it.
