A Tale of Two Cities

I was up and out of the house reasonably early for a Saturday morning last week, around 7am, and my first destination was the Southbank. It’s normally teaming with tourists, but I had eggs to find so wanted to do so while it was quiet and early morning seemed to be the best choice (I returned later in the day to get a few indoor eggs once locations had opened and it was indeed busy busy busy).

Enjoying the solitude I took a walk past the London Eye/Millennium Wheel, slowly following this guy and his dog as they walked along. It’s likely due to the dog, but for some reason I thought they looked a little French to me. If it wasn’t for the landmarks I could easily have believed I was in Paris walking down the Seine.

It wasn’t too long before they presented me with this photo opportunity; the guy leaning to get all of the wheel in his shot of the Thames, and the dog adopting this pose so that the leash didn’t pull too tightly.

I loved how it turned out.

  1. Love this one MIke, great capture, especially like the drained out colours and the slight out of focus Big Ben

  2. I’m so in love with your city. the buildings and scenery is great, and this photo is just more evidence of that. Also, the dog standing up like that cracks me up. Like owner like dog!

  3. wow you’re right!!! It’s very easy to imagine this is not London but Paris, amazing scene indeed. Love the dog, so curious 🙂
