Tower Bridge at the Tower of London

The Tower of London is not as spectacular as you might expect given the prominence of the Tower's role in the history of England. It was here that many prisoners were brought before public executions which were held in front of the Tower.

The edge of the Tower building is to the left and Tower Bridge (often misnamed "London Bridge", is in the background, a short walk from this location.

London is surprisingly easy to see on foot or combined with a double decker bus tour, as many of the major attractions are clustered within a few miles of each other along the Thames River.

It's the way people see art and express themselves. Every architectural curve, every line says something. How often do you read art paper samples to perceive art? People see it through images, not text.
