London, England, taken on June 11, 2016
Hyde Park was a great place to people-watch in London and I did just that before the rain set in last Saturday. I was more timid in London than I was in Southeast Asia about taking photos of people, but I did capture this one of a lady in the midst of snapping a photo of her own 😉 (See the original photo in colour.)

London has a bunch of strange yet interesting sculptures but I was only able to see them on the bus during the half day that I was there. On my way to Liverpool Street station, I saw this sculpture – “A Pear and A Fig”, by Ali Grant. I hope to be able to go sculpture hunting one day in London to catch the ones I’ve missed!

In my early memories, my impression of several European countries were based on specific landmarks or symbols of these countries. For example, as a child, the first image of France that I had was that of the Eiffel Tower. For the Netherlands, it was the windmill, and for Italy, the Tower of Pisa. As for England, the Big Ben stood out for some reason, and even today I see it as the prominent symbol of London. It reminds me that I should revisit London sometime since I’m so much closer to it now than I ever was before.
