London Photo Journal

Here are a few photos from my recent trip to London that turned out nice enough to share without taking the time to do any editing.

While I was in London, I had the chance to attend a reception at the House of Lords.  Of course, it was very nice, but the best part was getting some access to the terrace right on the Thames.  This gave me the opportunity to get a few shots from a different angle than most are usually able to shoot.

I was also able to get this shot of the London Eye and County Hall from across the way as the sun made its final descent in the horizon.

I had arrived for the reception a bit early so had a chance to stroll around the parks and streets just south of the Houses of Parliament.  My first discovery was an edition of Rodin’s “Burghers of Calais” scupture in the Royal Gardens adjacent to Parliament.  This is one of my favorites of his but I did not know they had a copy here.  Then, I strolled around the side streets and was able to get the following shot.
