FABULOUS London

Pics taken during my last trip to London. I've walked a good 90 miles from Uxbridge to the west to Barking to the east and from Tottenham up north to Croydon.

One of the most varied and exciting urban citiscape.

These photos are incredible Manuel. You seem to have found some great vantage points to take these pictures, I love the one with the DLR train Where is the derelict building with the ram on top?

Wow! those are stunning Manuel.

London has probably the greatest diversity in architecture then anywhere else on this planet.

London would always be one of the two most important, attractive, diverse and charming places on the planet...

despite its weather reputation, it's just a city that anyone must visit, at least once in their lives...

Great city! But main attractivite for me is street life, nightlife, international feel. And modern architecture is very diverse and stylish.
