London

For the first 7 days of each month, I like to do a photo-essay with a theme picked by my audience. This month, it will be bridges in fish-eye. Categorized by city in alphabetical order, lastly, we end up London to check out Tower Bridge, as highlighted in Day 2: February 23, 2012: London. This time, it’s a more standard shot of the bridge, but with the twist that fish-eye adds. As I was going through photos to choose the 7 for this week, I contemplated not using this, but the soft lighting for the sun complimented the blue and white sky and bridge so well that I had to. It fits the theme too perfectly!

Tower Bridge in London, England, which spans the River Thames.

Don’t forget to have your input on the theme for the month of April! Poll #2 coming March 23rd!

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.

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.
