London is full of iconic architecture. As a matter of either law or sensibility buildings constructed since the war don’t look anything like each other. Yet they are packed together in tight spaces and surrounded by curved roads. Rather like a room crowded with well dressed people all dressed for a different type of party.
The serene structure in the middle of this collage is St Paul’s Cathedral. It is the envy of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, The Tower, The London Eye, Lloyds and the rest.
St Paul’s is also the high point of my summer of castles, keeps, forts and cathedrals. So much so that I visited several times. Like it’s lesser sisters it does not move much. It sits, satisfied with it’s place, indifferent to the movement all around.
The Queen’s copyright prevented filming inside. But the inside would surely deserve it’s own blog.
Our visit to St Paul’s will be the last of the European entries. Others were filmed in Europe but this is the last about Europe. We have returned to Moraga and are reacquainting ourselves with a more normal (for us) life.
Thank you for following our adventure. As we will be wandering less the blog will return to it’s weekly schedule. Publishing scenic videos that evolve before your eyes, on Tuesday mornings.
