These were a group of homes that were very English in my view. Very neat, tight homes that were very close to one another. I thought that this was pretty cool and it was a good representation of London and just how packed everything is to fit 8.8 million people into 1572 square kilometers. Which is around 5.5 thousand per square kilometer according to the internet and my calculations. You could tell that there was always something going on while walking through the city.
This is a shot I really like of a clock tower in London. I do not know what it is called, if any of you know feel free to leave a comment informing me. The colour of this tower intrigued me along with the style of architecture.
This is a photo of the Westminster Abbey, or at least the upper part to capture the Gothic style building and roof style. All English royalty is buried here if what my tour guide said was true, and many other famous English people. We had to watch where we were stepping as some of the stones had names on them, and out of respect we attempted to step around as many as possible.
This is a shot of a Courtyard in Oxford University. Our tour guide was telling us a neat story about the clock in Oxford and how it was either behind or ahead of London’s time for the trains if I recall correctly. It was pretty neat.
We were in Trafalgar Square on a particularly busy day there, a festival was going on, but I can’t quite remember what it was. I believe it was celebrating the feast of St. George but I don’t fully remember. We went into the national gallery, and it was very nice. Many paintings and pieces of art were there. I don’t really remember anything notable from there. I do appreciate art but I don’t know enough about paintings to properly remember much of it in great detail. It was still very nice to check out.
This was a shot of Tower Bridge in London. Our tour guide pointed the bridge out and asked what bridge it was, and many said “London Bridge”, but as he pointed out, it is a common misconception. The London Bridge isn’t nearly as exciting. This was Tower Bridge. A cloudy day in London was nothing new and I didn’t want to let it ruin such a good picture.
Two posts from England in a row! This is my favourite shot that I took at Arsenal Stadium. I had been following an audio guided tour and explored the many places to see in the stadium, and these players are treated very nicely.
