☂London's rich architectural history is something to marvel - well, that is what's left from the Great Fire of 1666. Gratefully, The Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Banqueting House and some Tudors still stand. Although London lost many of it's amazing historical structures, there are new and modern ones adding to the eclectic urban skyline. When one thinks about what great cities have to offer, bridges, towers, and grand buildings usually come to mind (and for me food, but that's another story:)). The most famous architects and those aspiring to be, often target cities for their next grand structure. Through architecture, you get to learn about a city's history and future - London offers many styles of old and new - the Canary Wharf at night shows the best of the new.
The Light of London is one of a series of books by photographer Jean-Michel Bert. These books are also among my favorite as Bert pays homage to some of the best cities in the world. In this case, his images depict London's medieval and modern architecture.
If you are in London, or planning a trip - take time to enjoy it's architecture - and be sure to bring a brelly:).
