Photos from a day of sightseeing in London, England
After publishing our recent photo essay from London, we were left with a few photos that we felt were still “photo blog worthy”. Rather than let the photos go unnoticed, we decided to share these photos and create a “part 2”.
There’s good reason why London always makes the list as one of the world’s greatest cities. The historical city blends modern development with its medieval past, offering snap-happy tourists endless sightseeing opportunities.

We originally tried to make Big Ben a wrist watch, but the photos didn’t turn out very well

The best way to see London is via its underground metro system. If you arrive in London with a vehicle, consider parking and use the London Underground instead

This trip to England was during the cold month of January, after spending weeks bouncing around Europe experiencing its festive Christmas Markets.
Fortunately for us, we captured these photos just before a massive snowstorm hit the United Kingdom, paralyzing its transportation network and grounding all London flights (we spent 20+ hours at Heathrow Airport waiting for the runways to clear!).
