A Barbican Tower on a misty morning at about half 7. Taken from the junctions of Old St/Clerkenwell Rd (east west roads) looking south down the last stretch of Goswell Rd, EC1. The building to the left is where the City of London begins, where as I was standing in Islington (borough of, that is, not the district known as Islington).

The Barbican and the near-by Golden Lane Estates, both within the City boundaries make up the majority of the City's tiny residential population, I believe (around 8000 last time I checked I think). If you don't know the Barbican then you must have a google, one of the most unique and best spots in the whole of London imo. Incredible architecture and 'scaped scenery, raised walk ways, maze-like (you can't but help get lost) with an arts complex, cinema, schools, exhibition space and a giant conservatory (that unfortunately always seems to be closed whenever I've had a look around) and yer cafes n restaurants etc. I think the London Philharmonic Orchestra are based there too.

Looking down Herbal Hill in Clerkenwell from Clerkenwell Rd, EC1. Literally on the boundary of the local authorities, the buildings on the left are in Camden borough while those on the right are of Islington council (but who looks after the road in the middle I wonder?)

If only I'd got that lady in red when she was in the middle of the street she would have stood out so well in the light! ah well too late

Really great photos from lovely London. I'm very glad I've seen them. You've done pretty good job.
I've been living in Paris for a year and now I think to move in London in 1-2 years. I'm sure I'll like it.

Thanks people, and BC, I hope you do like it, its my favourite place! I've never been to Paris, would love to go but I'd imagine for me London will always be number 1.

A few random ones..

Heres one from the other set, with added geese! (at least I think they're geese..)

Where I study, looking out onto Euston area, (well, I'm in Bloomsbury but it gets positively Euston-y in that bit)

The West End's skyline looking South - there's Centre Point, and the BT Tower

Wesminter's skyline, with the tower blocks of Soho either side and New Zealand House, Haymarket in the middle. This is looking directly South. I believe the church spire is All Saints, in Fitzrovia

Barbican towers and City Point, the Hereon, Gerkin and Tower 42 behind in the City of London. St Pancras and the blocks of an esate at Mornington Crescent are visible in the foreground.
