I am gobsmacked by some of these photos. Perhaps you do not realise just how good some are. Please post these in the UK forum, in the photos of London thread.

i sometimes think that from certain angles london almost looks a bit like los angeles...becuase you have the wide flat sprawling suburbs with a small but nicely formed cluster of skyscrapers

Thats exactly what i thought, the skyline sort of has the same shape too, although i prefer London's one, plus it has two clusters.

London really does look like LA from the hills to the North and South.

For those who know London, the view from Suicide Bridge in Archway, on a hot summers day (with lots of smog), is a dead ringer for LA.

Like LA but not, especially as London is actually good.
