2DAY IN LONDON

Hello all! Now that I have settled into pastures new at university I have another exciting picture thread to start - and what more appropriate date to start it on than 10/10/10. Mirroring that of '2DAY IN BRISTOL - A Visual Diary', I plan to update this one perhaps slightly less regularly as work constraints and travel from the outskirts may limit my time in the city but nevertheless a few times a week is certain. Of course there will be many touristy shots as I suppose I am a tourist to London but like my other thread, I plan to take many other pictures of less touristy areas with time.

I hope this attracts as many or maybe more visitors than my Bristol thread and obviously, don't forget to stay tuned for updates on Bristol later in the year.

Beautiful weather. I'm now feeling guilty for spending most of the day at home sleeping and being lazy. I should have gone out for a photo-tour myself.
Good to see that you were using nice weather for a good purpose.

To me, London is the second most beautiful city in the world after Paris. Its architecture, however, is the most beautiful in my opinion.

I think that's a fair comment. I would always say Paris is a 'romantic' city and London is a 'bustling' city. London certainly takes on many different styles, which I sometimes associate with the continent whereas Paris definitely has a more consistent architectural style.

Fantastic pics! Beautiful architecture!

Are you going to venture into the more bohemian and rough areas of the city as well?

Thank you, yes London's architecture is wonderful. I would like to think I will visit some less classy areas too. Once I have got to grips with the central areas and the West End which is large enough as it is lol then I will certainly. With time I hope to go off the beaten track more and more.

Hey there! Indeed a new canvas has been established. As you say, one will never get bored in London as it is too big and vast - there's always something new somewhere! This thread will certainly keep going for as long as possible. Thanks for your support as always mate.

Great set of photos, once again Mike! As with your Bristol thread, I'm going to be bookmarking this thread specifically. You've already captured some great pictures of London and I'm sure that you'll have your work cut out, in a city that size.

If you get the chance, take a trip to Richmond Park. From what I can remember, there are some great vantage points for capturing the skyline from a distance and it's a beautiful place to just chill out and forget that you're in a big city.
