WOW fantastic pictures and alot of the areas are very familiar to me. I used to work round the corner from Oxford Circus. There is something special about London when you are reminded by those pics. One reason why London 2012 will be amazing.

There's a reason why http://www.boston.com/bigpicture is my favourite blog. The website gets updated twice a week, and they *always* have amazing pictures, sometimes they are shocking and heart-wrenching, but they are always worth to be seen.

Those are beautiful, thank you very much. If only London was this peaceful all the time, try getting through oxford Circus on a Saturday Afternoon, never as tranquil as the photo. Nevertheless I do love London, and I will enjoy the next years that I will spend here

London was my home for 3 years (2004-2007)...I attended King's College London, Guy's Hospital campus at London Bridge, where I studied craniofacial development in embryos. Boy do I miss London!
Just about all those pictures show familiar areas of London to me...I used to walk through central London from the Russell Square area (where the University of London residence halls are) all the way to London Bridge (where Guy's Hospital campus of King's College London is).
That lonely bend in the road is the spot where I walked under the road (just past Blackfriars Station), past that small church, past the London Boys School, before crossing the Thames via the Millennium footbridge.
You can see the 30-storey-tall concrete tower of Guy's Hospital in some of the London Bridge photos; that's where I went to school for 3 years!
Walking all over London, I got to know the areas in those photos very well.
Will I ever get back to London someday? If the opportunity ever arises to go back to London and continue my craniofacial embryology research there (as I did 2004-2007), I would jump at it!
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made... (Psalm 139:14)

Quoting Vc10 (Reply 13): Now what was our government saying about turning our central heating down by one degree and only having one light on at a time so as to reduce energy consumption and so save the planet
That's exactly what I ask myself everytime I fly over central London to LHR.
