The long-awaited photos

Last week I was getting all existential and thinking about how two different people can take the same holiday and wind up with entirely different sets of photographs...almost as if they were on two distinct trips.

Anyway, I wound up wishing I'd photographed different subjects...I feel like I had to do the expected buildings, the famous landmarks, and with my limited memory card, I missed what I would have liked to record...the people, the random details like street signs and tree branches and the warning "Mind the Gap" printed along the subway platform.

So I've decided that I shall have to go back to London. Now that I've gotten the expected photos out of the way, I'll be free to shoot pictures that feel like me. Maybe this time I'll even bring the hubby along. :)

Okay, these photos are arranged in eight different pages. Within each page, you may click on the photo to enlarge it, then scroll over the i for additional information. Click the arrow to return to the current page. To change pages, click on the arrow at the bottom.



For those of you who are my mom and want to see larger versions of the pictures, click here.

You've sparked my wanderlust something fierce. Gorgeous pictures. I know what you mean about wanting to capture the incidental stuff though.

hey nic, you have got the gift of photography...among many other talents! Makes me think back to my trip to Europe...I think I have a pic of that same cafe! Fun. Just wanted to say hello.

My sister-in-law just went to London and got a Mind the Gap shirt for my husband. We had regretted not picking one up when we were there 11 years ago, and so I made a special request of her. ;) LOL
