This photo is a panoramic sweep of the view from just one window on The London Eye. There is a little bit of reflection, but this is unavoidable when taking photographs from inside a glass capsule! We took this yesterday, so the weather is unfortunately not great, but it captured the smoky, built-up feel of London, as well as the iconic River Thames, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. This photo was taken on my mobile phone, as I stupidly forgot to charge my DSLR!
I did have a little giggle at my oldest daughter, Bunny, who had been reading the info on the tablets on board and learning about the different buildings she could see. She learnt that the OXO tower was formerly a Post Office. However, this got a little muddled in her mind by time we got off The London Eye. She pointed out the Houses of Parliament to us and boldy stated that “The Houses of Parliament used to be a Post Office”. Very cute, but me and Hubs could not contain our laughter.
Massive thanks to the 12 of you who linked up fantastic photos last week. It’s really nice when I pop over to visit them the following Sunday and I see that most of you have commented on other photos from the linkup. It’s lovely that this little linky has such strong support already.
So here’s this week’s linky, for those of you who want to link up again or any newbies who’d like to join in.
Incidentally, those of you who link up on a weekly basis – I know it can be a hassle adding the badge to each post… If it’s easier to just add it to your sidebar rather than to individual posts, that’s absolutely fine with me. The badges are great for helping new people find the linky.
If you can spare a few minutes, I’d really really love some nominations in the Brilliance in Blogging Awards, in the TRAVEL and FRESH VOICE categories. You can nominate me by clicking on the badge on the top right of this page, which says BiB Awards.
