I got to spend 5 days in London while at a conference last week. Here’s a few photos I took during the little bit of time I had to play tourist.

Flyover for the Queens B-day
I was there for the Queen’s birthday and happened to be standing on London Bridge with one of the greatest vantage points in the city when they did a big cannon salute and military flyover.

  2. i really *hate* to be a Londo-pedant, (and when we get onto the subject of our bridges, our pedantry is nearly unlimited) but that’s Tower Bridge, not London Bridge. London Bridge is the dull, featureless concrete one along the river. Looks like you had good weather for the trip though.

  3. Thanks for the clarification. There are certainly interesting backgrounds on both bridges.
