London

(View from pedestrian bridge next to Tate modern- London skyline ahead)

I’ve never been anywhere as sprawling and filled to the brim with life as London. It was simultaneously historic, trendy & hip, regal, bustling, and overall… surprising. I loved it. I felt like London, more than any other place I visited, was hiding lots of beautiful nooks and crannies perfect for accidental discovery and armfuls of appreciation. I was there for a week and a half, so I have more pictures from London than from anywhere else. Here are some that I particularly enjoy.
