London and the Eye

London just before Christmas! A good time to be there, particularly when the weather cooperates. On Wednesday evening we enjoyed the Royal Commonwealth Society's Christmas Concert in St. Martin-in-the-Fields (Trafalgar Square) and then the Society's annual Christmas Party at their headquarters on Northumberland Avenue. Next morning the sun shone with a winter's low angle brilliance that cried out for some photography. So we decided to take a "flight" on the London Eye. The London Eye is the largest "observation wheel" in the World and is a truly maginificent experience. A few photos taken with the Finepix S7000 cannot do it justice, but here goes!
