London by Night

Like others of the world's great cities, London really sparkles at night and dusk, making for some beautiful photo opportunities.

These days, the streets of downtown London at night are a far cry of the days of dim, flickering street lamps fueled by whale blubber and Jack the Ripper lurking in the foggy shadows.

Like other of the world’s great cities, London really comes alive at night. It’s one of my favorite cities for night-time ambling, not to mention night photography.

Tower Bridge. It looks like it should be the London Bridge from the nursery rhyme, with its castle-like towers, but London Bridge is actually a little further down the Thames. [license topic=”tower bridge night”]
