14 Pictures of Big Ben

Big Ben as seen from the London Eye

You think you only need one picture of Big Ben, well how about ten?  How about fourteen –  I think that’s plenty.  You know me, I love London, and I love taking pictures of it.  However, I think I love taking pictures just in general, not just of London.  However, London is a special place – the place where I once went to when I was eighteen when I didn’t know where I would stay and just showed up.  When I saw it, I was besotted – it didn’t seem like the rest of England, the England I was accustomed to – the up north England of Yorkshire, or even the few other places I had been to occasionally for weddings such as Leeds, Birmingham, Derby, Walsall or places such as Bingley, and Halifax that I had also gone to quite a bit.  London was different.  London was grand, elegant, majestic, breath-taking, and ever so different.  It was like being in another country.  I ended up staying in a bed and breakfast for a few weeks, and then rented a studio flat in Paddington.  Anyway, let’s get back to reality and to pictures and not my story of another time.  I will leave that for another time.  

Here are some Big Ben pictures, who could have known it could be next to so many different things and look different in each picture.

Here it is is, alongside the Houses Of Parliament

Here it is with people in front of it, well that was bound to happen!  And a bus, and now that building on the left crept into the scene too.

Here it is with more of a glimpse of another building behind it (the white building).  The trees show up more in this, and the sun must have just gone behind a cloud too.

Here it is with the London Eye showing up.  How did that happen?  Magic!  Well actually no, just get pictures from all different angles and you’ll get different pictures – pretty amazing!

Here it is in just it’s plain grandeur, next to a spiral tower on a ceiling (not just any ceiling, mind you).

Here it is next to historical buildings – this part of the Palace of Westminster (also known as the Houses of Parliament is known as Cromwell Green and if you look closely, you can see a statue of Oliver Cromwell at the bottom right).

I hope you enjoyed seeing the changing scenery that included the Big Ben in it.  Also, the fourteenth picture I added in right at the end as the featured image, and that was Big Ben as seen from the London Eye.  As you can see, you will get a completely different look of Big Ben from there.  Well, until next time.
