london city


I'm not sure why London was so special.  Maybe it was because of the sound:  the constant hum and murmur of people; trains zooming and high heels clicking on stone; the shuffle of coats and sweet laughter; musicians on the road side; or the sound of birds singing, slowly drowned by the whir of a bus. 

And London's lights - yellow, warm sun and beaming headlights.  London's darkness - but the city lights that twinkle and shine in the midst of it.  London's shops - filled with styles just imported.    

Dear London, I like you.  Your museums are just stellar -- of course your shops and art galleries and architecture and gardens are, too.  You seemed to smile when I visited you.  The sun was so golden and the streets full and moving.  I could go on and on but I must stop.  Traveling life is wonderful, but school life essential.  (I'll go work on that essay.)

    2. Oh yes. You'll have to come along... (you can be the travel-photographer for all of us, I have a feeling you'd rake the most amazing pictures.)

      Oh, and anyone else wanna come?! Join the party!!! ;)

  5. I've always wanted to go to London. But Italy, Germany, (because I'm a WW2 history lover:)) and Hawaii are also way up on this list. Spain would be neat, too.
    Let's go travel the world together, Acacia! ;)
    LOVE your photos! All of them were so gorgeous.
    You so need to do a post for Fernweh.

  12. These are some incredible photos. The slightly grainy black and white one of the building kills me. I wish I had taken that picture.
