London from The Eye

London from The Eye

Of my many trips to London, I’ve only been up on the London Eye once. This photograph was taken in March of 2007 and it remains a favourite of mine taken in the city of London. The haze around the city mixes with the colours of the sky so beautifully that it makes me pause every time I rediscover this picture. Big Ben and the Elizabeth Tower surrounding the bell, as well as all of the Parliament buildings seem to stand out against the rest of the city, along with Westminister Bridge.

I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by!

London

March 26th, 2007. It was a rare sunny day in London.

This trip was the first time I went to Europe. It started in Germany, led to Sweden, then England, France, and finally, Italy. Unfortunately, I didn’t keep a journal back then.

I was on this trip with my mom and my brother and we spent the day touring the city, from St. Paul’s Cathedral to the London Eye, Big Ben to Westminster Abbey, The Towers of London, and of course, Tower Bridge.

Starting from the top left: St. Paul's Cathedral, View of Big Ben and the Parliament Buildings from the London Eye, Westminster Abbey and the bottom row is all pictures from the Towers of London.

I figured, if I’m going to use the typical subject, I’ll add a little spice to it. Bascule bridges are found all over the world, but Tower Bridge is among the most well-known. The bascules are raised around 1000 times a year. All you need is 24 hour notice and you, too, can steer your boat down the River Thames at no charge.
