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!

I thought I would start 2013 off right with a shot of one of my favourite cities on this planet, London. This was taken in 2011, but I am currently in the planning stages of a trip back to Europe (which usually results in London).
This photograph was taken with a fish-eye lens and it seems to exude a feel of the British city that matches my memory of it. There’s diversity in the people, looming and dramatic clouds as well as astounding architecture as far as the eye can see.
Happy 2013 WordPress! I wish each of you a year that see’s you move forward towards your dreams.
