Tower Bridge

Mistaken by some for London Bridge, the famous bridge in this photo is the Tower Bridge. On the right side of the photo, you can see part of the Tower of London. Hence the name of the bridge right next to it.

That's a gorgeous shot - that camera is pretty impressive (well, the photographer's alright as well...) ;)

very nice shot ... it is my favorite bridge here, and I can't wait to live in the top of the southern tower

I've really been enjoying your London pictures.

I'm jealous as all hell, but still...

I've never understood the confusion since London Bridge is rather famously in Arizona and has been for many years now.

Great pix!

Greg said...

That's a great shot, Jess! You could print it and sell it as a postcard.

Beautiful shot! You always have such a great eye for angles.

Rats, I was hoping to make a silly comment about enjoying your vist to Lake Havasu, but I've been somewhat beaten to the punch.
So, enjoy your trip to Jolly Old ... I am envious!

Jess said...

Thanks for the nice words, everyone.

Jere: Actually, there's still a London Bridge. The old one got moved to the US southwest, but there's still one there (there have been others over the centuries). I think people make the mistake b/c they sang the song as children (really!), and that's the bridge in London that they most often see in photos, so they just assume and don't check.

Bob: We'll expect an invitation to visit when you move in. ;)

The Tower was totally the best part of my trip to London. Well, except for that Irish boy, but I digress.

Jess said...

Andy: are there photos of the Irish boy? ;)

God I bet you were just thrilled with your camera while you were there. The pics couldn't be any better. And with your eye for composition, well let's just say if you decided to quit your day job, you've got another. ;)
Mwah,
