Photo from London!

Hello visitor,

Welcome on my lens!

This lens is about a photo from London. I took this photo when I was on a journey to London with school.

I am going to tell about where I took this photo, why I took it and when I took this photo.

I hope you enjoy to read about this cool photo!

Amazing photo! - Great shot, isn't it?

Journey to London


I go to the Scala College in The Netherlands (Holland) and I do bilingual education. All of my lessons are in English except for Dutch, music lessons, German and French. Because I do the bilingual education we went to London where we spend a week with my class. On the 21st of May we left The Netherlands and on the 22nd of May I took this photo.

Pigeon in front of my photocamera

The pigeon has a meaning in many different cultures. But for me, a pigeon is just a beautiful bird. The pigeon in front of my camera was not on purpose but it made my picture unique.

On my cool picture you can see the Big Ben. The Big Ben is renamed in honour of queen Elizabeth. Now it is called the Elizabeth Tower.

Special lampstandards

The lampstand on my picture was designed by George Vulliamy. These lampstandards are also called Dolphin Lampstandards and only situated on the south bank of the Thames. The lantern is round like a globe.

      Lovely picture, and it's a great idea to have created a lens about it. Where you talk about the two House of Parliament, I think you meant to say House of Commons, and not House of Comments. :-)
