A Bit Of London From The South Bank with St. Paul’s Cathedral And More
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. I’m so sad that it’s already gone by, I wish it was always Christmas – it certainly is my favorite time of the year. If there was one place that I really wanted to be this Christmas – it was in London. London is spectacular when lit up for the most wonderful time of the year.
Anyway, I need to share more pictures with you. These pictures are still from my third day in London during my recent trip in July of 2014. When we left the London Eye, we were in the South Bank area and just look at this double decker bus. Fancy giving yogurt that name though – I am surprised! That name, not mentioning names has quite a colorful meaning.
This is Charing Cross Station in the background
This beautiful building reminds me of a castle or palace
That’s me in the South Bank area with Big Ben behind me. Oh, how I wish I was back there right now!

Here’s another mini London Eye – actually it’s just a kid’s ride – some kind of swings. It looks nice though, doesn’t it?
Forgot what this building is called, that’s exactly why I should have written my posts as soon as I came back, but who has the time? If you know, pray do tell.
Well, this whole area near the South Bank, including the bus in the first picture is ever so colorful!
Wow, doesn’t this look nice? It might be a bit dark though.
Now, you will get treated to the same picture with the Snog Bus in sight

Oh, how majestic is St. Paul’s Cathedral – this place is so special. It’s where Princess Diana got married to Prince Charles.
St. Paul’s again
Either it turned dark quickly or I have been watching this man a while, or perhaps it was just my camera that is somehow curiously taking pictures with different lighting.
Here’s St. Paul’s again basking in the glow of London as seen from the South Bank
St. Paul’s yet again. I guess you know that I like St. Paul’s?
Seems like someone else likes it too as he’s taking a picture of it or is he looking the other way? If so, I know there’s good views that way too.
More of the London skyline
This is the building I showed you above, but here it is glowing in the London evening
Now it’s glowing less, but basking in the sunset
I’m not sure what this building is either, but just feel compelled to share with you how lovely London looks in the evening.
This picture is quite blurry, but I’ll throw it in anyhow.
Anyway, I hope you liked my evening pictures of London. I don’t have a great camera that takes brilliant evening pictures, but still – I think they’re okay. Have a fabulous week ahead, and Happy New Year to you all!
What a wonderful travel report. I enjoyed every photo. Thank Your for this interesting post.
Happy New Year 2015 to You and Yours!
Thank you, Matti! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Happy New Year!
