Just before the new year, I was able to take a walk around London as the sun set. I enjoyed a different angle for photos of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament than my last visit or my trip in the fall of 2015. This time I took a few (haha) photos as I explored. Hope you enjoy them!
I loved this view when I came out from the tube and saw the evening light on the clock face. When I crossed the bridge, I was struck by this doorway before turning around to check out the view across the river.
The view while walking across Westminster Bridge
The view I’d been hoping for!
There was no way I could wait out all the people gathered there to take photos, so I decided to appreciate their presence in this photo. 🙂
Poor quality photo, but I like seeing the details on this lamppost.

Christmastime with Big Ben
The view back at Big Ben as I walked toward Westminster Abbey
Central Hall Westminster
I couldn’t get very close to this, but have appreciated this prayer on the side of Westminster Abbey since I saw it last year.
Checking out where the Prime Minister lives… it seemed pretty secure. 🙂
Walking through the Horse Guards building.

I’m trying to knock out these London posts so I can post more up-to-date photos soon. Most of these photos need little description since they’re the shots everyone gets when in London, so here you go!
Outside Westminster Abbey
On the front of Westminster Abbey
This is the church where I attended Bible Study Fellowship during my trip… conveniently located between Buckingham Palace and Big Ben!
A great place to get fish ‘n chips!
On a work day, I was able to visit the building where my sister’s church meets, St. Botolph’s, Aldersgate, to get photos of the beautiful sanctuary…
