Iconic Buildings in London

There are only 12 weeks left to go before we jet off to travel the world and this week I finally told my boss that I’m leaving. On Friday evening as we sped through the city in a cab to our work Christmas party I watched all the historical buildings in London whiz by through the window and felt everything catching up with me. Soon my job and this city that I love will become nothing but a memory.

I’m trying to deal with these strange feelings of homesickness and nostalgia by taking our new travel camera out to photograph all my favourite places. As well as the river, the markets and parks, I’m amassing pictures of all the famous buildings in London – and there are a lot. From modern glass structures to old factories and religious buildings in London, there’s something to photograph around every corner.

      Thanks Jo! We photographed the 02 while we were taking the cable car over the Thames. I highly recommend taking a trip on the cable car, you get some great views as long as it’s a nice clear day.
