    What an interesting day you have had some wonderful buildings ancient and modern there.
    I was supposed to be going to London today with my sister for Chris Packham's 'Walk for Wildlife' but she wasn't well so couldn't go.

    Sadly not always the case as a lot of old buildings, and things like parks etc are being lost because of the new Crossrail.
    I hear they are even going to destroy an ancient woodland and cemeteries for the high speed trains to the north - all for the sake of a time saving of about 20 minutes I believe. Madness!

    Looks lovely and peaceful there - although I think I would have been tempted to saw through the legs of the Goose blind!;)

    When you would not have mentioned the Tower Bridge I would have thought it is another city. So many new and futuristic looking buildings.

    I don`t like it when old architecture is mixed with new and very futuristic looking architecture.:(

    When there is so much damage there are difficult decisions to be made. Sometimes something modern looks better than something new pretending to be something old.

    I am disappointed too. After his appearance a few days ago, I thought he would at least be able to pop in today, but it seems he is busy elsewhere :(

    The party was not far from home fortunately. I am sure some will be up late into the night, but we have crept away and are heading for bed now.

    Tomorrow a trip to the out in laws.

    I know what you mean Bee - as impressive as the new buildings are, they look out of character with the historical buildings.
    That seems to be the way of the world these days. I suppose young designers are going to design modern buildings - I wonder if they will stand the test of time as the older buildings have!
