Here is a dark treatment of Big Ben with Westminster Abbey faintly visible in the background. This tower is so iconic and I got so many shots of it when we were there last year, I thought a stark, alternate take on it would be refreshing. Be sure to click on the image to view …

This is another image from my solot walk along the Themes that I overlooked initially. I remember I couldn’t resist shooting the moon hanging off of the tower.

The Eye Peeks Through

Another Black and White for today. This one was shot from the top of the London tour bus as we passed near the Houses of Parliament in Westminster.
