Building London

DSC_9068-001The Imperial War Museum looks a little defensive,

We spent a lovely morning touring the World War I exhibit with the charming Nick Lucas, brother of our friend Simon. We’ve met four of the five Lucas siblings, and they’re all delightful.

I just liked the look of this building: Out Patients Department.

Just an old Hydrolic Power substation that caught my eye.

We played hide-and-seek with The Gherkin on our walk from Trafalgar Square past St. Paul’s Cathedral.

I don’t know the name of this building, but it was certainly noticable as we traveled around the city. I wasn’t sure I liked it much until I saw how it caught the light at sunset.

Shakespeare’s  Globe Theater.  We didn’t have tickets, but we went into the gift shop during the show. Sat across from it and enjoyed cups of tea and coffee and people watched a bit. This is along the Queen’s Walk in Southbank.

The ruins of Winchester Palace, another of the stops along the Queen’s Walk.  It dates to the 12th Century and is probably the oldest thing we saw in London.
