The Tower

We have reached the mid point of our little adventure.  France fades into memory and Great Britain looms.  We start our British adventure in London, on the Thames.

Two very famous buildings sit at the eastern edge of London.  The notorious Tower of London and the bridge that bears it’s name.  We shall approach from the east.

This entry is almost free of boat vibration.  A small thing in some respects, it is a giant leap in technique .  After all, one of the reasons I started doing this was to rationalize the taking of boat rides.

From the river Tower Bridge stands like two sentries.  Anticipation building as you pass.

From the tube station or taxi stand the Tower itself is an interesting relic.  From the water it is even easier to connect with the sense of foreboding so many have experienced as they approached the traitors gate.

Please enjoy your two minutes on the Thames.

    Ahhh London! I had forgotten the Tower Bridge was so colorful. Slow TV down the River Thames makes a perfect day.

    Very nice, actually someplace I have been before so to see it on SlowTV brought back good memories.

    Great pan.
    You did it slowly enough so we could take in the details w/o getting nauseous. Too bad the boat started rocking towards the end. Or, was it rocking all along and you compensated. Or, was it rocking all along but I was so into the scene that I didn’t notice. Or….
    Obviously I haven’t gone back for a second look yet.
    I will, I will.
