London through my lenses

The following photos are bits and pieces of my London photo album that has grown from 2001 till now. Some of the pics have already been posted and others are new to share with you.
You’ll see London through my tourist trails but also through passionate eyes, or even my worker and urbanist own filters. Pictures are named but ramdomly presented to stick to London chaotic urban form. Some of the pics are in Black and white because to capture an atmosphere, but most of the times because the sky was so shit! All pictures are taken with my now defunct Sony DSC-5 (or something).

I hope you enjoy!

These are simply amazing....and thank you for at least helping to cure my homesickness (haven't been back to London in 7 years).

Great pics, my favourite is "Working in the City........", with the gargoyle in the foreground and the City boys in the glass elevator in the background. That picture sums up the City (the district) in just one picture. Brilliant.
