New photos of London

Big BenBig Ben and Westminster BridgeApart from one photo, it's been almost two years since I added any new photos of London to my London photo gallery - there were a few special features created, but that's it.

So when I went to Greenwich yesterday with the rest of the students off my MSc course, I thought it was about time to take some new photos for the gallery. I've uploaded seven new photos, including my first ones of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

One of the new photos is a photo of Tower Bridge. This isn't just any photo of Tower Bridge though, it's a bit of a special one. The day that our boat travelled underneath just happened to be the first day in many years that the bridge had stopped working. It had locked in the open position (just slightly - so you can't tell from the photo) and was causing traffic chaos.
