On a clear day, London is a photographer’s dream. Today was one such day.
We started with a boat ride down the Thames to Westminster Abbey.
After our tour, we headed for Westminster Notabbey, e.g. Parliament. However, admission to the building was not free since Parliament was not in session, so we passed in protest.
After brief visits to Hyde Park and Harrod’s, we ducked into the National Gallery to take in a couple of Vermeers.
It turned out the National Gallery is a really nice art museum, and we spent a little time there. For example, the guide said there was a Rembrandt in room 22(?), whereas in fact it was a room full of Rembrandts.
A visit to the Tate Modern completed our day.
Below is a shot of that building with the bar and restaurant at the top. (Also prominent in above shot.)
