It has been great to watch the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate recently and having seen the live coverage on TV certainly brought back wonderful flashbacks of my first visit to London several years ago.
Here are some photos from my trip for your viewing pleasure.
The year was 2004 and I was among one of those people who stood in front of the gates of Buckingham Palace. Not as a royal guest but as a tourist.
The large memorial in front of Buckingham Palace is called the Queen Victoria Memorial. It was also an ideal spot to view the changing of the guard performance at Buckingham Palace. Unfortunately, it was raining when we arrived and the ceremony didn't take place at all and I was naturally disappointed. :(
As the weather wasn't the greatest, we weren't able to take many good pictures.
However, here are some of my best shots.
The London Eye.
North side of Westminster Abbey.
Big Ben and Houses of Parliament
St. Paul's Cathedral
An unknown structure. I don't remember the name of this building.
And last but not least, here's the Tower Bridge, one of the many awe-inspiring beautiful landmarks that made me fall so truly, madly, deeply in love with London. A piece of my heart still remains there. The rain finally stopped and I managed to find a flat surface to secure my camera when I took this photo. I was glad with the way it turned out.
That's My World
