A walk around Central London #1

Over the years I have visited London on numerous occasions but seldom with a camera. Today was my first visit to London with my DSLR so it was nice to go for a walk around many well-kent streets to see and photograph some of the sights.

London has some incredible sights. Fantastic buildings and architecture (mixed with modern carbuncles).

From my base in Kensington, I caught the tube to Westminster and then just made up a route as I went along finishing off back at Embankment.
