London in Black & White

Again, here are some shots I took in London, only this time in b&w.

Again, Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese. I like this one better than the one in the previous post.

Iron fence with gilded finials... I don't remember where this was.

Horse fountain at Picadilly Circus

Same fountain at Picadilly

Juggler at Covent Garden

Ruins of a Christopher Wren church

This photo is generally unremarkable, but I thought it was funny when a Mallard Duck came swimming into the frame. I don't remember ever seeing a duck in a fountain anywhere else. Ever.

So, there we are for a while. There are more London photos, but it'll be good to take a break for a while and do something else. Another location, perhaps, say France or China? We'll have to see.


More of London

Here are a few more photos from the London photos that I wanted to share. Here again is, of course, the ever photogenic Parliament.

At sunset...

... and forty minutes later.

Crown Imperials in Hyde Park

This is Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, a very long operating pub/restaurant that several fairly famous figures in history used to frequent and which was rebuilt after the Great London Fire of 1666. I couldn't resist and actually did eat lunch here.

This room was in the outer perimeter wall of the Tower of London.

I saw these vines during one of my meandering walks through one of the neighborhoods near our hotel. I thought they were pretty neat.

That's it for this round. More to come some other time.


Just... Grass

Just a light post and a light photo. This one's a little over 3 years old. I forgot about taking this picture until the film came back (there's that "film" stuff again). When I got the prints back, I was interested to see how the texture translated in B&W.


A Boy and His Frog

This wasn't a staged shot... he really fell asleep just like that. This photo reminds me that I really need some sleep. Have a good weekend, everyone!
