You've popped in! You've made my day!
I feel a few songs coming on today. How about Waterloo Sunset by the Kinks or Waterloo by Abba? I was standing on Waterloo Bridge over the Thames for the photos below. There's always something wonderful about the sunlight on this particular bridge, I don't know why. Unless it's raining of course!
Looking over to one side, you can see St Paul's Cathedral, the Shard, the Cheese Grater, the Gherkin, the Oxo Tower, the Walkie Talkie, Canary Wharf, Tate Modern, etc - all in no particular order! Click on the photos to zoom in.
On the other side, there's the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye amongst other things.
Getting off the bridge on the North Bank and turning left, you'll come across Cleopatra's needle and two Sphinxes on the Embankment roughly opposite the Royal Festival Hall then the London Eye a bit further down.
Somerset House is right next to the bridge on the right of the North Bank. There is always something going on there. This time the fountains were dancing up and down. I just missed the photography exhibition but I did look round the Terrace Rooms at the free event Venturing Beyond Graffiti and Everyday Utopias of the Street which featured allsorts of odd things like painted li-lo's, perhaps to be expected by the title of the event! Still, there were a couple of exhibits which could well have been turned into quilts as the colours went so well together - you never know when you might be inspired!
So lovely to sit in such a nice place with a cup of coffee from Tim's Kitchen too.
