Postcards from London

My hotel in London was right opposite the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.

Here’s Tower Bridge with elegant accents of blue.

It was cloudy for almost all of my visit –

But I did manage one pink morning (snapped on my mobile phone).

Parts of the old Roman wall of London

Are visible every now and then.

(I like the way the old stone is reflected in the modern glass on the left.)

One late evening saw us in Chinatown

Under red flags and a popcorn-cloud sky.

    It is great to visit London through your eyes. The photos are magnificent but that pink sky does not quite like me. It seems too unreal.

    So, that is the infamous Tower of London. The structure is awesome. I read a lot about history. It is an infamous place. The structure is awesome but the tower was a place of execution or a jail in medieval times.
