On life’s ancient tales,
Steeped in the history of London."
- Neil Peart
If you got throught the last couple of prolix dispatches, you definitely deserve some purty pictures. Luckily, I've been continuing to develop my relationship with London in no small measure through my electronic viewfinder. Some recent results:
- A bridge, that was a gift to the Royal Ballet School, from its patrons, near Covent Garden.
- I didn't realise the Clock Tower is visible from Trafalgar Square (specifically, from the portico of the National Gallery).
- Christmas lights in Bow Lane, in the City.
- St. Pauls was visible from the same alley.
- Christmas lights on Oxford Street (the main shopping drag).
- Kensington High Street, also in holiday finery: anchored by the art deco Barker's Arcade shopping complex on one side, and St. Mary Abbott's Church directly across.
- Houses of Parliament from Lambeth Bridge and
- Millennium Bridge and St. Pauls from Tate Modern balcony at night.
Just because they're a couple of entirely decent shots, and in case you missed them in the flood of prose in which they were buried . . .
