London Calling

Just got back from a trip to Southwest England and London and it was awesome. I hit the usual tourist spots, but I'm hoping some of my photos captured some of London's daily city life as well. Now is the time to visit, before the craziness that the Olympics and the Queen's Jubilee will bring. London is preparing heavily for both events, which you'll see in many of my photos.

Enjoy!

Thanks. I did visit a bit of Chinatown and Greenwich, but didn't get a chance to go to Camden. Here's a few more photos, the complete set can be found in my signature.
