Actually, I'm not a Londoner, I hail from the Midlands in the UK, but I absolutely LOVE London - whenever I get the chance to go, I am in the car and heading for the M1 in a heartbeat!!
So, as part of our mini-break, when DH casually mentioned "do you fancy a day out in London this Saturday?" I had the sandwiches packed and camera charged before he had barely finished speaking!
We arrived in the capital just after 12 noon, all ready for a grand day out. And yes, I did get through 2 camera batteries! This time I have made some themed photo collages, I hope you enjoy looking through them as much as I enjoyed making them.
So, are you all sitting comfortably - then I will begin
One of my sons is totally fascinated by skyscrapers, I have to admit that I do share his fascination. Here we have a range of London's finest examples: The Shard, The Shoehorn, The Midland Building and The Gherkin (great names I think!!)
Borough Market - I wish that I could somehow transmit the wonderful smells coming from all the food stalls we saw there! Just look at all those handmade chocolates...love the old Potato merchants sign..
London by night - Nelson's column in Trafalgar Square, Mews on the Mall, Admiralty Arch, the Star Flyer ride on the South Bank, London Eye and Wellington Column.
And finally, some more unusual finds:
loved the name of this sculpture!
And who knew I was THIS famous ;)
Thanks so much for taking the time to read through this post, I think, lovely readers, you all deserve this:
Have a wonderful Sunday!
