Some times i forget just how much i love this city that i live in. With everything that's happened this year, and with all the changes and what not, i finally felt like i needed to walk off some steam and relax. So i hopped onto the District line train and jumped off at my favourite starting point; Tower Hill. I walked from Tower hill along the Thames all the way to Westminster, crossed the bridge and walked back again. It was nice to just sit down or stop and check out the view for a while without any worries. And there was no shortage of things to see. These are the things that make me love London. I spoke to an american couple, quite old, who were over visiting relatives and couldn't find StPauls, i spoke to an old Photographer, taking pictures of bridge structures, but most interestingly, i spoke to a bagpipe player. There was also alot of crazy Italian football fans going about, which i admit, although a little jealous, definately lightened the moon along embankment. I guess, i just think London is a beautiful place and everyone should visit here.

Before i forget, i would officially like to change my opinion of the Battle of britain memorial that opened a while ago. I thought it wasnt adequate for its role, but i stumbled upon it today (it's near to the lifeboat pier) and i must say i was impressed. It kind of made up for me missing duxford. No media on it did the monument justice. Check out the pics.

So to sum up, i walked for a few hours, met some people, ate some mcdonalds, watched the sun go down while listening to bagpipes and generally arranged alot of thoughts in my head that needed sorting. Enjoy the pics, their only low quality caus i took em on my mobile phone http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This first one is of the moon, i couldnt believe how low it was and how nice it looked. I felt very lucky to see it.

Thats the London eye http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif It's there 24/7 and gives a great view of London skyline....

as to the memorial, that is generally the feeling i got looking at it, it really did express the struggle of the time well IMO

Great pictures, Dan!

That feeling of rediscovery is always a good one.

I'm going to visit Krakow this summer, and I can't wait! It's been FOREVER since I've been there and I miss the city. There's just something grand about walking down streets surrounded by buildings that are centuries old. I live in a 3000-person hick-town in the middle of Michigan, so it's quite a change of scenery!

I do hope to visit London one day, for sure!

I'd love to see all of the UK myself, the farthest I've ever been from home (northeast Ohio, USA) was out west in California, not exactly a new experience however nice it may have been.

Russia is another one I'd like to see alot, especially all of the historical sites and the museum in Moscow itself.

When i first saw this I knew my dad had arranged to spend a couple of days in london in 78 on one of his return trips to Iran. I finally found the pix he took, including one his cabby took of him at night standing in front of a spit on a stand at an RAF base somewhere.

He really loved the place, and told me I should not pass from this planet without going there once.

When i was photographing the CAF ww2 airshow in Harlengen tx in 89, i hung out one day with 3 brit ww2 vets, one of which had been on the evaluation team of the CR-42 that landed on the beach in the BOB.

They told me that if i could ever afford the trip I should show up in air show season and they would put me up and show me the historical sites, the imperial war museum, and that i would hve a blast in London.

Well, how many times was the British military on our soil with the purpose of NOT burning down our White House?

I'm sure if there was a war against Mexico or someone else and British military men and women came over to help defend us, then we'd make a few memorials to Brits as well.

You burned our damn White House. Thanks.

What I meant is that you put memorials for others because they fought on your soil for your country.

Not many countries came to defend us on our soil mostly because we've never really been invaded on our own soil before.

So that's the reason there aren't many memorials to Britain in the U.S.

Going slightly of topic here, does anyone know how good the fishing is on the thames? lol.. No I'm not joking.

That is a nice Spit pic, also nice to see a reminder of how those aircraft were tended to on the ground, by dedicated hands http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
