The Two Towers

Little late here but an additional shot of Tower Bridge and a few of the Tower of London. Sadly, in the years since I was there as a kid, the surrounding area has not only been redeveloped but has rapidly encroached on the site itself, most of the office buildings around it towering it and obscuring any kind of reasonable distance view of it, least for me and my 50mm lens right now. I shall have to return at a future point with the 20mm I have on my shopping list.

The Pride & The Spire

Filed under: Thames, Tower of London — Tags: , , , — BlacksmithPro @ 12:13

In the grounds (possibly former moat, I don’t know) of the Tower of London are these three, completely out of place but totally awesome, wire frame sculptures of a pride of Lions. View points are limited of them but I had to get a shot of them nonetheless as I knew the contrast of the metal material would have them appear almost b/w against the green grass surrounding (a b/w version of the same shot is included at the bottom). The Spire picture was taken from the same vantage point as yesterday’s Tower Bridge photo, the first landing of the public access steps leading down from London Bridge to the pedestrian pathway that runs along the north side of the Thames.

Tomorrow, The Two Towers!
