E is for...

Eye! The London Eye to be precise.
I took this picture in 2004 when I took my goddaughter A. to London for a few days. It was overcast for most of the time we were there, I embarassed her on a few occasions (I only was about 40 pence short in small change, after counting for about 10 minutes), but we had a great time anyway. We went on the Underground a lot, we took a touristy trip, we visited the London Dungeon, we went to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in the theatre (BIG hit) and of course we went on the London Eye.
I hope that despite the embarassing moments, she remembers our time in London well...

  2. I love the angle of this shot, and the overcast day gives some character to the picture. I'm sure your granddaughter has fond memories of being with you.

  5. Great picture; love the wheel, sky and the plane just coming into the frame.

  6. Personally, I think the Eye looks much better - more dramatic - with overcast skies. And the angle you chose enhances it beautifully!

    Embarrassing your children is necessary from time to time. It teaches them things. Like, parents aren't perfect. ;)

  7. A great photo for E! I visited London for the first time in 2003, but we didn't get to go on the Eye. Next time, for sure! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  10. Ooh, beautiful shot! I really love it. I have only been to London once, for a whirlwind two days, and we didn't go on the Eye :(
