Classic London architecture

There's so much detail to enjoy in this sort of architecture
I found these sheep and their shepherd in Paternoster Square, near St. Paul's Cathedral. They were sculpted by Elizabeth Frink.
St. Paul's Cathedral
The sun came out just as I took this - perfect timing!
The cherubs were enjoying the sunshine too
Do you ever get a feeling of being very small?!
I'd love to know what they were talking about!
A boot scraper outside St. Mary-Le-Bow - only to be used by genuine Cockneys?
The Bank of England has such elegant pillars
I visited London today for a school concert in a church St. Paul’s Cathedral so I took my camera along to take some architectural photos while I was there. I spent some time before and after the concert in the area around St. Pauls and found lots of inspiration in the architectural shapes and details around the Cathedral. Once I felt I’d exhausted St. Pauls I walked along Cheapside towards the Bank station, stopping off briefly at the church of St. Mary-le-Bow. The bells from this church provide the definition of the term Cockney – for someone to be considered a genuine Cockney they must have been born within the sound of Bow Bells. Outside the church there was a chap shining shoes and I couldn’t resist taking a surreptitious shot of him while he was deep in conversation with a customer. I finished my walk outside the Bank of England in Threadneedle Street where I took a few shots of the building’s façade, the only remaining part of Sir John Soane’s 1788 bank building.
????? You've had me looking up most of this set ... nice details and compositions.

revenant So, Sir Christopher's epitaph should be updated to read (in English) "if you seek my monument, look about you - at f/11, 200 ISO, 1/30 sec". I like the tone in 1 and 3.

Nice shots
