Some more of London

Nothing too much exceptional, just snapshots from few places. The main reason why I didn't take more pictures - weather. It sucks when for the entire week it's sunny and dry and on the day you go to a photo tour it starts raining :bash:

Anyways here are pictures, taken about a week ago :)

Near Tower Hill tube station



Office buildings seen on the opposite bank of Thames (part of London Tower can be seen on left)


Does anybody know what building is this? Quite a big one


No need to introduce this one ;)



London Tower






Next to Fenchurch train station




This is what London City is all about







Tower 42... ugly (at least for me)


Canary Wharf tube station


Piccadilly Circus (sorry for the rain ;))



Piccadilly tube station on my way to my place



I've got some pictures of suburban London. if anybody's interested I might post those as well. :)

Not sure KM :)
My deadline is September since I'll have to continue with my studies, in any case it's pretty soon. But I might go back later again, who knows. I love London :)

Sunny day in London's West End

A few pictures from Oxford Street and surrounding areas taken yesterday afternoon :)

Oxford Street, Centre point Tower far away













BT Tower



Back to Oxford Street



Traffic jam :|






Protesters protesting against war, violation of animals' rights and similar stuff :)





some more protesters with their funny posters :)


:runaway:

















Weather was perfect and very warm, rich guys are taking their toys out of garages and go to the streets to show off :)



Near the Marble Arch



Some grandma holding "Peace news" paper


A bit further away from the Marble Arch, centre point Tower again can be seen in a distance

That's a good question. I'm really not sure if native British form the majority in London. On the other hand London was always known as one of world's most multicultural cities so seeing so many foreigners is not a surprise. Thogh I don't like such manifests of "cultural identity". What if I'd start wearing traditional ancient Lithuanian outfit? :crazy:
People who are coming to other country should adapt and respect the society they live in instead of trying to go against it.

You're lucky, Jonas! It's so great to see such photos (street level) of my favourite city!!
Thanks! :eek:kay:
Thanks ;)
I indeed feel lucky to spend some time in such a wonderful city, it's gonna be a sad day as I'll be leaving. Though I'll be coming back again and again and maybe I'll stay one day :)

I have seen people walking around like vampires, so I doubt anybody would care about your Lithuanian look.

Anyway, a religious object like a headscarf isn't in thesame category as a whole ancient Lithuanina outfit.

Do you also feel that Jews for example shouldn't be able to wear their religious clothing and objects?

Btw, very nice picture and weather like that is holy in London. ;) Great!
