London: Day One

Tub, originally uploaded by mattallenphotography.

London was, as I think I said before, amazing.

We stayed at a hotel called the Rookery, in an area of London called The City (near Farringdon station on the Circle line, and also near Smithfield Market). The hotel was beautiful. Very old world feeling.

Our first day took us through the east end of London past St. Paul's Cathedral, over the millenium bridge to the Tate Modern museum, east along the Thames to the Design Museum then across the Tower Bridge and back to our hotel to get ready to see a show in the west end.

More pictures to follow, or if you like just head over to my London flickr set to see what I've posted there so far.

Long time no post

Been a bit busy lately, which is why I haven't posted in a while. For one thing I took a brief vacation over to London to celebrate my 5th year wedding anniversary (with my wife, of course). I shot a bunch while over there and I am still going through all the images.

I freaking loved London. Just wandering around the side streets could've entertained me for weeks. It's just a beautiful place to stroll around.

Here's a quick shot I took from within our hotel room, it serves as a bit of a foreward to the whole set of images.

Over the next few weeks I'll put up more images from the trip.
