These photos were taken during my recent holiday in England. I realise that's the Tower Bridge behind me, not the Tower of London, but something I didn't realise until I went there and saw it myself is that the reason it's called the Tower Bridge is not because it has a couple of towers, but because it's right next to the Tower of London.

So, in these photos, I am indeed sitting right outside the Tower of London, which is just off-camera to the left. If you don't get the joke, read up a bit on the history of the Tower...

Oh, and not long after making these photos, I was stopped and interviewed by a police officer, who searched my camera bag, on grounds of suspicious activity, potentially related to terrorism. I have a carbon copy of the police report sheet to prove it.

2022-11-06 Rerun commentary: Oddly, that last linked photo is by far my most popular photo on Flickr.

Way more popular than this photo of a little bee-eater, or this pre-wedding portrait of some friends, or this shot of a road sign near Uluru, or this coastal sunset landscape.

It's been that way for years, and I've never quite figured out why... until now, maybe?
