10 Photographs of London Icons and Architecture

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Americans out there!

Move Guides listed some places to grab a good old Turkey dinner tonight if you’re in London like me. I, however, will be spending my Thanksgiving with my dad and brother who are here from the States. My brother is itching for a good crepe so I will take him to Hampstead for a mouth watering lunch from the little kiosk, La Crêperie de Hampstead, my favourite in all of London. Then perhaps a little wander through Camden and a stroll along the South Bank. In the evening, we’re have a very non-American Thanksgiving, celebrating with fish and chips followed by drinks with my dad’s friends and family in a little pub in Dartford.

Who else is celebrating Thanksgiving in London? What’s the plan? And, more importantly, who’s going to make me some pumpkin pie?

For today, I give you 10 images of London icons and architecture from the Flickr pool:

Skyscrapers of London

A big welcome to one of the newest talented contributors to the Flickr pool: Tony aka MeDwayBoY. He’s added this series of four black and white skyscraper photographs. London’s a comparatively low city generally when you look at places like Dubai or Hong Kong or New York, but with the recent addition of the Shard, of course, it is growing taller…

Thanks Tony!

Wimbledon Library

I rarely write about architectural details, but they are fascinating and London is full of them. Do you have any favourites? Any architecture trivia for us? Here’s a little slice of Wimbledon Library I walked past a few days after I moved into the area. Made me smile so I thought I’d share:

Leave your own London architecture shots in the Flickr pool.

Speaking of libraries, are you reading any good books at the moment?
I’ve finally started The Help, one I’ve been meaning to dig into for ages now!
