Broadcasting House

This is the BBC.

After a nice Sunday afternoon stroll around London's West End, I was heading back towards Baker Street station, when I found myself in front of BBC Broadcasting House. With a lack of traffic and pedestrians, to spoil the view, I managed to take this shot, of the oldest part of the BBC Headquarters.

Cutty Sark

Last of the Tea Clippers.

It was back in 2012, for my 40th birthday, that I last visited the Cutty Sark, in Greenwich. This was shortly after she had been rebuilt, following a catastrophic damage caused by a fire during restoration work, in 2007. It was a pleasant enough afternoon afternoon and, although the crowds were on the large side, they were hardly noticeable in the newly created space around the historic vessel.

Monument to the Great Fire

A Monument and a Scientific Laboratory.

The Monument
, as it is known, once stood proud above the skyline of London, offering unparalleled views of the great city. Since its construction it has now been dwarfed by the newer buildings in the area, which has led me to wander past this icon, without even noticing it. Today was different, and I managed to grab a shot, whilst trying to avoid the hundreds of tourists and business types.

Leadenhall Market

Arcade of Iron and Glass.

It was a strangely quiet Friday lunchtime, when I found myself wandering towards the City of London, when I decided to take a look at Leadenhall Market. The City of London, and its immediate environs, is an area that I have least visited so I was happy to rectify that on this particular jaunt.
