A walk through London 2
Lens: Sigma 17-70mm/f2.8-4.5 Camera: K-5 
Posted By: newmikey, 11-14-2012, 09:54 AM

What Americans call the "Subway" is actually an underground passage way for pedestrians here This is what's called the London Underground or "Tube".



That tube gets you to Waterloo Station, in this case at ten to three in the afternoon - Industrial Revolution architecture at its best:



No tourist can bypass the Tower of London:



And of course St. Paul's Cathedral although I opted for this rather than a straight touristy shot:

Mike, these are super creative and every enjoyable to view! Finding new perspective on all things vernacular and touristy is a hard task, and you did it extremely well!! I especially like your take on the Tower of London and St. Paul's Cathedral. Thank for sharing

Nice. Everytime someone can avoid a "London Photography Cliche", I say bravo!
The Tower of London and St. Pauls are especially hard.
Oh, and don't drive into central London. I just got hit with close to $400 of penalties ( 3 cars on the three days).

Looked long and hard but I suppose that, being all grown up, I'm not really meant to find it! What would an old geezer like me be doing at Hogwarts anyway? My magic is gone

I dunno I'd beg to differ and suggest there's a fair bit of magic in your shots!
