Street Wise: The Buildings of London

The past couple of days has involved an amazing coach tour around London and visits to Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, and a journey aboard the London Eye. There were so many incredible sights, both historic and modern, that I thought you might enjoy a little mini-tour by photo.

These gnarled tree formations in front of Westminster Abbey really struck me: the design of Nature, alongside the architecture of Man. Beauty has many forms.

I love the weathered pockmarks old buildings grow. This little detail inside the newer cloisters of Westminster Abbey really piqued my curiosity; what is it? A cross, a lady, and a triple spiral?

And now for some ordinary streets and buildings, which just happen to have some extraordinary interest and architecture.London street
