Great set of pics especially of my old stomping ground of Temple and Fleet Street.

I wish I lived in Central London. It's so beautiful over there.

BTW, where is this place?

You've done it again, El Greco! Amazing pics! I am always looking forward to your set of pics of London. It's amazing how the Square Mile contains so much grand buildings in so little space.

Unfortunately, the building below has been approved for demolition:

Great shots! Your pictures show the wonderful diversity of architecture in London. It is truly a city with an amazing photo opportunity on every corner.

El Greco, just to confirm: are these pictures only within the "City of London" or within London itself?

It's a nice building but I'm unsure whether I object to it's demolition without more information. Care to say what's to replace it?

Wow, this thread is amazing, the best one of London I've ever seen! The city looks absolutely stunning in these pictures! Although I knew that London is an amazing city (unfourtunately, I've never been to London), I'm really, really impressed! Thanks for sharing and congrats for the pics!

Quite a few great captures of the old good (or bad? ) City of London. Weather perfectly illustrates my feelings about this part of the capital: a little gray and cold but still elegant and capturing with bright and warm spots.
