On to more famous sights now (the previous entry in the series is here).
Trafalgar Square, in my view, is the center of London, where every first-time visitor to the city eventually finds himself – and, potentially, lingers for a while. It can be insufferable during staged public events and it is always too busy with tourists on a nice sunny day, but it is none the less majestic and impressive. And on a warm summer night, it can even be tranquil.
Nice sunny day it was.
Here is another angle, with the National Gallery prominently seen.
I love fountains. There are two identical ones in the square. The church of St Martin-in-the-Fields is one of the attractions around the square.
Big Ben, which we will see close up in a couple of chapters, fits into a nice composition when viewed from the center of the square. The sun positioned itself uncooperatively for a good shot, but I felt it was still worth taking.
