Anne & Paul

I headed out for an evening of photos and beer (mostly beer) recently with Jim Nix and Ollie Smalley, and we stopped by St Paul’s for a few snaps, as you have to do when in that neck of the woods – it’s the law of London.

Though I have taken images of the building (my favourite in London) many times before, I’ve never taken one that featured the (replica) statue of Queen Anne in front of it. That’s Queen Anne standing tall in the middle, with two of four people visible at the base (they represent the places Queen Anne made claim to, which are England, Ireland, France and North America).

I always find St Paul’s looks a little odd when the magnificent dome is not in sight.

No matter how much I love looking at this building, and taking photos of it when I find myself on various rooftops; the view from the golden circle at the top of the dome is one of the best public views you can get of London, and I very much recommend you go see it if you haven’t already.
