Somewhere I read that these are the pilings from the old London, Brighton, and South Coast Railway bridge near Blackfriars. Please correct me if that's wrong, for I have no idea. But I thought they were pretty. :-)
Blackfriar's Bridge, London
Blackfriars is where the GHOST from London Walks took my daughters and me (by car - I think he felt sorry for us lost-looking Americans) so we could catch the Tube after the most fun walk ever! Check it out at London Walks. Even if you never take a London Walk, David Tucker's narrative is a blast! Oh, and by the way, David Tucker is originally from Wisconsin! He went to Oxford for his Ph.D. and ended up buying London Walks.
Westminster Bridge, taken from the EYE
There are three bridges that I can see in this photo.
The nearest is Westminster Bridge
The second nearest is Lambeth Bridge
The farthest is Vauxhall Bridge
The Westminster by Gaslight walk (also from walks.com) took us from the Westminster Tube Station, east across Westminster Bridge, then south along the River Thames, west across Lambeth Bridge, and north along the west side of the Palace of Westminster (Parliament) til we were back where we started.
Right. This isn't a bridge.
But it is the view we had as we were walking south along the east bank of the Thames and looking across the river. It's a beautiful sight.
Crossing Tower Bridge
I had thought this was in east London, but then realized that it's either a sunrise or a sunset. I don't think we would have been on the river at sunrise, so it must be sunset, which means we're looking west. So I guess it's the 'mystery bridge.' Is it possible that it's the Cannon Street Railway Bridge? for I think I see St. Paul's off to the right, upriver.
If anyone knows, Please let me know.
Tower Bridge again
the other side of which can be found a vendor selling ♪Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire♪ But I'm warning you now: don't bother to sing the song. It was totally lost on him. ;-)
I know. My daughter says, 'Mom, you're such a tourist!!)
Have a great weekend, everyone!
