London, UK (1)

This is the beginning of a new series of urban photos, and the subject this time is the city of London in the UK. The pictures were taken when I was there a number of years ago for some business meetings. I didn't have time to join any sightseeing tours (I am never keen on those anyway), but I did walk around a bit with my manager and try to snap a few shots with my pocket camera here and there. From the pictures, you can probably tell that it was spring time, and that's my favourite time of the year.

A nice park in the middle of the city providing a perfect escape for nearby residents and office workers to relax. (The blue sky and the clouds were added with Affinity Photo.)

A picturesque and peaceful corner of a pond at the park.

Not sure what this building is, but it's in the same area as Westminster Abbey.
