When I was going to take some pictures of the Tower Bridge, I came across this interesting fountain. So of course I took a picture of it together with the Tower Bridge. I’m always surprised what pictures I get while going for those that are in my head. These unexpected photos are often better:).

The Scoop

These modern buildings near the Tower Bridge present a nice contrast to the older parts of the city. The City Hall with its weird (nice weird:) look attracts many people and their cameras.

Nevertheless I think it helped a bit to bring out the vibrant colors of the autumn leaves.

Today I prepared another photo of the Westminster Abbey, this time photographed from its front. This angle is less known, at least for me. There is quite wide road in front of the entrance and it looks like pavement (so no cars…). So I walked to the middle of it and started to prepare for the shot when suddenly cab passed by in front of me. What a surprise:). Anyway, I managed to stay alive and made this shot:).
