Setting out yesterday (Thursday) I felt that this image captured elements that so remind me of London.
Victorian style apartments on the right, a Victorian style lamp post on the left and in the background from this modern world, The Shard Building, shrouded in cloud on a grey and damp London morning.
I spent an enjoyable morning exploring in the Borough/Southwark area of London and The Shard seemed to be a landmark no matter where I was.
In between times I had a look at Southwark Cathedral which is very close to the markets. One of the oldest church buildings in England and appearing to be in surprisingly good condition for its age.
Another treat was to happen upon Sir Francis Drake's ship, The Golden Hinde. It was worth contemplating the amazing feats that were achieved for queen and country in this vessel.
