London's Pictures

Lloyds Building
Lloyds Building (Nikon D5000)

Last weekend was a trip into London to have a walk around the Tower and a trip down the Thames which was interesting and any trip to London would not be complete without many trips on the underground which is sort of interesting but mainly a chore though it did include a trip on the DLR which is not very interesting at all really especially when we timed it right to coincide with line works so the DLR turned into a bus on Sunday. Staying just near the ExCeL Centre it was all rather new and clinical but comfortable nonetheless, but you couldn't help thinking that they had flattened a bit of London and walled it off so that straying either side of the area would mean that you would run into parts of what had escaped demolition that was less clean and clinical.

Anyway after walking for miles and miles and having rather tired tootsies it was time to force the family to walk some more to find 30 St Mary Axe or the Gherkin as it's known so after a wiggly walk though the streets (wiggly because we didn't know where we were going really and tiredness was setting in) the Gherkin was found a few snaps were taken and off again back towards the Thames to catch a boat back to Westminster Bridge to walk across the bridge to Waterloo to get on the Underground to catch the DLR to eventually stop walking. Anyway on the way back (not knowing where any of these buildings really are we stumbled upon the Lloyds building which is just yards from the Gherkin. On the underground back I fought the temptation at Canary Wharf station to insist on getting a picture of that too... wise move I think I would have had a rebellion on my hands. There are only so many buildings you can take your Wife and Daughter to before they fight back with clothes shops.

The K700i again ruining what might have been a good shot of Big Ben.

Canary Wharf
Canary Wharf (Nisis DV5)

Canary Wharf in low cloud. Not a great pic, but the DV5 comes up trumps, it's the framing and the reflection that lets it down... i.e. me.

From the coach the DV5 kicked out this quite nice pic. Not great, I missed the very top, but we were moving some.

Audrey (Nisis DV5)

Our train and the carriage that we rode in on the Orient Express. It's great it's just like a living room flying through London at speed.

Buck House, just down from the Ritz off Green Park. A quick walk from the Ritz because we were early.
