I never really took much notice of the lamp posts in London, but these ones have fish on the bottom of them! I was thinking of naming this image Carp-ey-Diem but then I may loose followers due to the pun….
Unlike the previous post, This IS London bridge. The oldest bridge in London, this bridge was immortalized in song. I took this photo on the walk back on the fly as I felt the drizzle really added to the atmosphere. In the background you can see The Shard.
London’s famous Tower Bridge is often mistaken for London Bridge. Constructed in the late 1800s it is still used as a major road to connect Tower Hamlets in the north to Southwark in the south. A London icon, this bridge is famous throughout the world! A long exposure of about 1.5 minutes.
City Hall in London. This is where the London Mayor has his office (now Sadiq Khan). Apparently, Ken Livingston called it the Glass testicle and Boris Johnson used to call it the Glass Gonad. What do you think?
This one was taken with my 10 Stop Zomei filter. A 17-minute exposure (ISO 50, f/9.0) to erase the tourists. This is the first time I’ve used it, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
Today we took the river bus to Greenwich and we passed under Tower Bridge. I had never seen it from the river before and had only previously been able to get photos from the side. The river bus costs more to get around than the underground…but it is totally worth it for views like this!
During the winter months, it is easier to see the sunrise. Mostly because it happens at the late time of 8 am!
I captured this one of the Walkie Talkie and the cheese grater (great names) this Morning just past sunrise.

Along the river, The Architect Sir Christopher Wren’s St Paul’s Cathedral stands at one end of the Millennium Bridge, with the Tate Modern at the other.

When we visited London in 2012, the Shard opened to great fanfare. Now the Tate Modern has a new (and importantly, free) observation deck. A great way to see a 360-degree view of London.

London is a cloudy place. As we landed visibility was low as the fog had not shifted. The shard is so tall it was the only structure that could ascend high enough to greet us.
