Walk Around London

November 14, 2014  •  2 Comments

Last Sunday, we headed up to London to find it bathed in sunshine and remarkably warm for a late Autumn day, so warm in fact that it was difficult to remember at times that it was November 9th! We started off with breakfast in our favourite place in Kensington High Street, Cafe Tarte, great, fresh food at reasonable prices. But enough of my culinary experience, we were out to take some pics.

 

Looking above the shops in Kensington High Street, there is another world that most people never look up to see.

 

The sunlight picked out the detail in the exterior of the Royal Garden Hotel.

 

Walking onwards we found ourselves in Exhibition Road, outside some of the Imperial College buildings.

 

The classical frontage of the buildings opposite make a nice wallpaper for the modern glass frontage of the College.

 

Even the cladding up high is a source of reflected architecture.

 

Makes you wonder if modern architecture is a step in right direction, doesn't it?

 

Opposite the College is this modern church building housing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

 

Walking further on we were soon standing outside one of the finest buildings in London, in my humble opinion, The Natural History Museum, absolutely smothered in fine details, and the more you look, the more you find to admire!

 

A coach was parked outside the museum, which normally wouldn't have excited me too much but it luckily came with some very reflective windows!

 

We did get some strange looks photographing a coach, but I think it is a bit  different to the usual shots of the museum!

 

Never one to shy away from taking a car detail shot, and this Tesla parked in the street was too good to walk by without taking a few pics.

 

Of course, London, like any busy bustling city, is all about the people. Though I must admit to not taking many people photos, even I was tempted to start taking some, especially when they are dressed to be noticed.

 

Must be lunch time!

 

Walking back to Kensington High Street, past The Royal Albert Hall, some colourfully uniformed guards were guarding the entrance, ready to greet some important guests going there for a Remembrance Concert.

 

Further along we came across, what must rate as one of the most peaceful protests ever, as a group of Romanians were demonstrating about the recent vote that they felt wasn't conducted fairly.

 

Not exactly spitting hatred is he?

 

Once again another great day in our Capital, with many varied sights to take in and enjoy!
