The evening London

I just love taking evening shots in the beautiful so-called blue light. Here’s a few shots I took this April in London over two beautiful spring evenings.

Metal sign on the gates of the Tower of London clearly states the ownership of the property.

Londoneve-10Rainbow of evening colours pose a dramatic background behind the Golden Jubilee Bridges.

Londoneve-11One of the new London’s landmarks, The Eye, can be seen from various parts of the city center. Long queues and high entrance fee were two of the reasons we skipped this tourist trap.

Londoneve-12Houses of Parliament with the Elizabeth Tower, which also known as the Clock Tower or Big Ben.

Londoneve-13Another view of the Eye with the Thames river.

Londoneve-14

A detail view of the Elizabeth Tower – Big Ben is actually not the tower but the bell inside.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Is located at the famous Piccadilly Circus, so finding it should not be too hard.

Robert L. Ripley (1890–1949) was a cartoonist, explorer, reporter, adventurer, and collector, who travelled to 201 countries in 35 years seeking the odd, the unusual, and the unexplained. In those years, he created an incredible collection of weird and weirder and a part of it, you can still see today in Ripley’s Museums all around the world. Here is just a teaser of what you can see in London’s collection.
