Today I’m going back in time to almost a year ago, during a trip to London. I saw most of the typical touristic attractions in the city, but walking alongside river Thames at dusk, admiring all the twinkling lights from the beautiful architecture, reflecting in the water.
I took this photo during the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace in London. It is quite a challenge to take decent photo during this event, since there are thousands of bystanders hanging by the fences.
This was taken last fall during my last trip to London. There are still so many things I haven’t showed you yet, like this colorful building, not too far from the London Eye. I found this facade very interesting, particularly since when you look at it straight you can barely notice the colorful panels around the windows, but once you take a few steps to the sides, the buildings gets a whole different look.
Another thing one cannot miss while in London is the rain. Usually that happens very often and you can’t really plan it. The entire time I was there, it didn’t rain at all, there were some cloudy days, of course, and the temperatures were not very mild, but I was spared the rain. That was until I left for the airport. Literary the last couple of hours in London were spent on pouring rain and this was among the last few photos I took.
During this trip I chose to stay at a hotel in Camden, and though it wasn’t very close to the city center, the neighborhood was very beautiful and lively. What is more, at weekend, one of the most amazing, eclectic markets I’ve ever seen was right there in the street. Camden Market is one of the most popular in London and the huge amount of people swarming the area was a testimony of that. Even the facades of the buildings were interesting and colorful.
