First Impressions of London

On my first day in London the city did not show itself in the best light. Making my way through the crowds of tourists and locals rushing in all directions on wet streets here is what I captured.

 

This Monday Jo is taking us to Sheepwash and the Moors. Though I haven’t seen any sheep being washed, the walk is gorgeous and inviting. Why don’t you join her here.

  3. Paula… for a bush boy like me your captures of a wet London are brilliant… I love what i see… and taking you to sheepwash doesn’t sound like taking you to “wash the sheep” so I think you will enjoy whatever it is and not work hard… look forward to your post on Sheepwash and the Moors…

    • Thank you dear Rob. I am happy that you liked so much the photos of London. I wish I could go to Sheepwash with Jo, but I am back home in Zagreb now. 😉

              • Not so sure your Great British Summertime comes close to our weather all year round… but that could be a debate that could go on forever… but one thing for sure you don’t have the wild life we do … I’m talking about wild animals…

                • You don’t think sheep can go wild? And we have some fine bulls, too! Only teasing Bulldog, but it’s nice talking to you 🙂 I wish with all my heart I could visit SA but I’ll have to settle for my Moors.

                  • I wish I could visit your beautiful country.. but I’d need to win the Lotto and lose a few years to be able to really enjoy it… with R17.80 of our funny money to your pound it would be a very expensive trip/holiday…

  4. Thank you so much for sharing your first impressions with me. I have stood on those very spots that you took the shots from. 🙂 My favourites are from the Eye. I loved being up there in the clouds. Monday hugs, Paula! Have a good week.

  6. I’ve lived in Canada my whole life but I was born in a town near to London. I’ve never been back since my family crossed the Atlantic when I was nearly 3-years old. I’ve always had some curiosity about the place.

    I really need to find some time to get away.

  10. Beautiful images, Paula! I actually like such overcast light. Those dark grey clouds in the backdrop add so much drama to the picture. Very nicely captured!

  11. So a normal day in London then? Personally I think those heavy grey clouds with layers of light make for a wonderful backdrop while highlighting the rich tones of stone in the buildings, and that’s before we get to the gilding! All great shots Paula!
