Scenic Sunday

Scenic SundayI'm posting over here today! 
In honour of the Queen's Jubilee I'm posting some photos taken in London in 2010.
It is probably my favourite city to visit as there is always something new to see and do.


Here are some quotes from Samuel Johnson on London:


"Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."
Boswell: Life


A country gentleman should bring his lady to visit London as soon as he can, that they may have agreeable topicks for conversation when they are by themselves."
Boswell: Life


"By seeing London, I have seen as much of life as the world can shew."
Boswell: Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides
