London Photos2 + Have a Fun Weekend

Kensington Gardens.
Kensington Gardens.

My dears, I'd love to share a few more photos from my trip to
London, if you'd like to see. 
Wherever you go in London you will be warmly welcomed.
My favourite thing in London apart from its historical sites is the
social life. I'm really impressed by all the cultural, intellectual, 
and social opportunities London has to offer.  
There are many cinemas, theatres, galleries, museums, pubs 
to go and tourists attractions as well.
One of my favourite museums is the Science Museum. (Sadly,
there are no photos of museums).
River Thames at night. Westminster Bridge.
Marble Arch.
Nelson's Ship in a Bottle, Trafalgar Square.

Nelson's ship in a bottle is a sculpture of Nelson's flagship
'HMS Victory'. The sculpture considers the relationship between
the birth of British Empire made possible in part by Nelson's 
victory at the battle of Trafalgar, and multiculturalism in Britain
today.
Oxford Street.
Oxford Circus.

London represents and epitomizes multiculturalism and liberal
thought and in London you find people from all over the world.
Piccadilly Circus.   
Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum.

Believe it or not, London is fun, weird, exciting, bizarre, fantastic,
historical, incredible, fascinating!

Have a sweet weekend, my darlings, and here are some great
blogs which definitely draw you back. xx

Imagine! here .

wonderful Nature Digital.

How about trying your hand at unscrambling these words.

I love these beautiful Christmas lights.

You caught some good skies in London, as well as all the sights. I love your architectural shots, showing the huge variety of buildings. Glad you had a good time. And thank you very much for the link. Have a great weekend.

You have a very good eye for pictures; for angles and textures and juxtapositions and other interesting ways of seeing things. I liked the long shot of the Houses of Parliament...but enjoyed them all.

Susan Deborah said...

I so miss London after seeing your pictures. I was there this summer and your pictures left me nostalgic and teary. I cherished the trip and your pictures warmly reminded me of the good times there. Thanks.

Joy always,
Susan

Υπέροχες οι φωτογραφίες σου, αντιπροσωπευτικές του Λονδίνου!
Κι εγώ δεν χορταίνω να το επισκέπτομαι, αν και τα τελευταία δύο χρόνια δεν τα κατάφερα και λυπάμαι γι αυτό...

Καλό Σαββατοκύριακο!

Nevine said...

Oh, London London! I've always loved that city. And you've captured her climate perfectly in photo # 2. There is so much to do and so many places to go... and let's not forget about the shopping! He he he...

Hugs to you and wishing you a brilliant weekend, my very dear friend.

Hello,

Lovely photos.

There was a time when it was said that the sun never sets over the British empire.It is incredible a small country like Britain ruled over several countries for centuries.They gave many countries excellent administrative system,armed forces,railways,tea gardens,post and telegraph system,lovely buildings etc.

I can see you really enjoyed your visit.

Best wishes,
Joseph

I would love to go to London. I love their accent. I'm sure they would have fun with my southern accent as well.

Thanks for the visit. (Ziggy has always been my favorite cartoon character too.)

Visited London in the 70's with a girlfriend. She and I were wonderful together. Soft memories from a sensual summer. Cloudy meant nothing to us.
