Memory lane

London has so many things to see and admire, and even though it is my own capital I have seen more of Washington DC. London is too crowded and far too busy for my liking, many of the locals are rushing about with little consideration for others.

The Mall

Unfair? Probably, but it is truly madness when you enter the boundaries of our capital.

Queen Victoria

Saying that I do love the place for taking photographs. Now I have learnt a lot more about photography since taking all these I often think I must return and do some more.

Buckingham Palace

One of the most photographed places in the country if not the world is Buckingham Palace. I have probably done the place an injustice with these pictures? But looking back through them today I thought it would be an ideal place to return for todays memory lane.

The Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace

The guards were out in force whilst we were there as they practiced for the Queens Birthday Parade, unfortunately we had missed it but they were darting all over the place. Still one the finest sights in the world.

  1. London is an interesting place. On my first visit (I was a teenager then), I felt an inner need to visit all of the “must-see” landmarks and I have a bunch of rather bland pictures in a photo album from that time. On my second visit, more than ten years later, I got to see some less obvious places but my third visit two years ago was the best. I spent a lot of my time in London wandering around side streets, inner courtyards and finding “secret” gardens. It was almost like discovering a new city.
