Judy, those are awesome buildings, and they have withstood some time as well. By the way, congratulations on our win of the chickadee!

Oh how lovely! What a blessing and joy to see all of this in person! Thank you, Judy, for sharing with us :) Have a blessed Mother's Day! Hugs

such grand architecture!!

Lorrie said...

Gorgeous buildings. Those first ones of the white stone gleaming in the sunlight are stunning.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Ginny said...

Wow! I would think any criminal would shake in his boots if he had to face these courts! If, in fact, that is the kind of court these are? The pictures are gorgeous! With the blue sky background, and I love the little red bus!

Karen S. said...

Gosh darn it, you are really tempting me to purchase tickets for England again! I am so eager to return, and your photos are going to seal the deal sooner than I had planned. I just know it! Enjoy your Mother's Day weekend and happy celebrations, may love and kiddos follow you all weekend long!

Terra said...

I like each and every building in these photos. You are blessed to live near such rich historic treasures. Everything here in California seems rather new in comparison.

I always adore seeing the red buses and phone booths!

Judy S. said...

Great photos, Judy. Wouldn't it have been fun to be in London this past week to celebrate the arrival of Baby Charlotte? Have a Happy Mother's Day!

Carla from The River said...

Great photography! Thank you for sharing. I am loving tagging along.

The boys still can not believe you have been to England 7 times!! LOL "That is so cool, Mom" :-)))

eileeninmd said...

Hello Judy, I hope your Mother's Day was wonderful.. I enjoyed these images from London.. The buildings, the red phonebooth and buses remind me of my visit to London..Thanks for sharing your trip! Have a happy day and week ahead!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

I love the architecture of old buildings and these remind me of some I saw in Ireland last summer. Our country isn't old enough to have what one can view in Europe so it's pleasant to see the details that have been crafted.
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Judy, I'm not getting around to visit everyone with the weather so nice outside so I appreciate it when we can visit on Mondays at least.

Red Rose Alley said...

These pictures are awesome, Judy. The girls visited England years ago and had the best time. I like how the red phone booth shows up against the old historic buildings, very charming.

Wonderful photos of London Judy!
We are flying to Dublin for a week's tour and then direct to Paris - now I wish we had slotted in a couple of days in London too - it's hard to do everything!

Quite a historic area with amazing architecture...I love the columns outside Lloyds.

Snap said...

Gorgeous buildings. I did giggle ... lawyers and bankers definitely need a bar nearby! :) Have a lovely week.

Mary Cromer said...

Just marvelous, as I feel like I just went on a beautiful journey and it is not even 6:30 in the morning. Thank you for that~

Mike @ A Bit About Britain said...

I remember commenting that you crammed a lot in - and you certainly took some great shots when you were over. Really good composition. But I see from one of your fans that you have now moved...?! Did you see the ornate tiling in that branch of Lloyds? I have a photo somewhere. And I've just got round to downloading my shots from Durham!

Very impressive architecture. I like the way you photographed the buildings; nice composition.
