We descended upon London, totally embracing being tourists – drinking London’s pride ale, eating fish & chips, visiting Westminster Abbey and the London Tower. We walked through Hyde Park in the rain and looked in awe at the crown jewels. We looked out over the vista of an English countryside, quiet and lush in the early morning mist at Windsor Castle, before turning back the hands of time to the wonders of Stonehenge. We laughed over a cup of tea at Oxford and watched the students walk by with our future in their hands. The beautiful streets, so proud, the people so elegant, I’ll always remember London as lovely as the classical music playing at Dean Street over the sound of soft falling rain.
next stop… the Chunnel to Paris!

Thank you for sharing such lovely photographs. I often browse through your photographs when I am having a not so good day at work. Your photos are therapeutic and quickly take me to my happy place. You inspire me to pick up my camera and document all the beauty in the world and for this I thank you and Kevin
That makes me so happy to hear Fernanda, thanks for your kind comment.
Wonderfully dreamy pictures…hope to visit someday!!
Ah, you visited Oriel College. My husband attended that college and we were there 2 weeks ago to take wedding photos after our ceremony in The Bodleian Library. Gorgeous photos, as always.
Such a beautiful place, just timeless!
Love your moody black and white travel photos of Paris, but these might be even better. Makes me want to get back to London.
Take me with you! 😉
These are beautiful, Jamie! Your images are always so magical.
Thanks for sharing this! One day when you visit the UK again, you must come up North and see more of the gorgeous countryside the UK has to offer. I live in Whitby in North Yorkshire and it is just so beautiful. I do love to visit London regularly with my job though, it is such an enticing city and I have so many friends there.
Love Annabel xx
I would truly love that! I have been quite enjoying being outside of the cities on recent trips and North Yorkshire I can only imagine as stunning!
Such beauty in these photos! Thank you thank you for sharing these. Makes me want to escape on the next plane to London. Can’t wait for your Paris photos!
Great pictures. I love the one with the Big Ben. It seems that we are in an old mistery film with Joseph Cotten or James Mason
Wonderful! Love the black and white images-perfect for conveying the atmosphere and mood of London-I’ve never been but it is definitely tops on my “trip to Europe” list…along with Paris and Italy, of course! 🙂
So unbelievably gorgeous. Classic London feeling with timeless black & white with that film grain! Perfection & so dreamy…
