London - again and again
London again and again! Yeap, here I am, once again in this beautiful city. This time I was here only for a few days for the world famous LeWeb conference and I was lucky enough to catch such a wonderful weather.
I've described London for many times now. So this time I'l just show you some more photos of this beautiful city without description of the places. Check out the view from the Buckingham palace.
Skies over London are always full of airplanes and choppers.
This is a famous view of the Hyde park. Notice anything new? Compare it to the one I took in 2010. The new Shard building can be seen almost from any place in London.
Famous Hyde park birds. I just love this place.
People sure know how to enjoy a good weather in London.
Very cute little building right on the corner of the Hyde park.
And of course - squirrel. Closer look.
Beautiful Hyde park. One of my most favourite places in London.
Some signs have even their own custom lightning. How cool is this?
Funny green smart car. You can see in London practically anything.
Approaching the Big Ben.
Classical London cabs. By the way the can fit up to 7 people inside.
The Palace of Westminster with the UK flag
And here is a place where LeWeb conference took place - Westminster Abbey. Pretty much in the very center of London.
The Palace of Westminster and the Big Ben
Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill monument.
A closer look of the mighty Big Ben tower.
I'm telling you! Every time you look up you will see at least one plane over London. In most cases you'll see several.
Classical photo shooting place. Red telephone cabin and the Big Ben.
Green park is full of animals as always.
Duck island cottage right in the center of London.
Fast and the Furious - at the moment the most popular and awaited movie in theatres.
A lot of people choose bicycles instead of the public transport. At least when it's sunny.
New monument to remember all the women that participated and died in the World War Two.
Classical symbols of London and Britain - Telephone cabin, underground and The Palace of Westminster.
And another cute squirrel. They are absolutely everywhere.
Black swans in the park. Also really beautiful if I'm honest.
As we walk across the Green Park you can witness London Eye from time to time. Given that it's 135m high sometimes it's hard not to see it over the buildings.
Busy skies of London and the London eye.
Even though there are always huge lines for it it seems like now the cabins are half empty.
It is the tallest wheel in Europe, visited by over 3.5 million people annually. I've taken a tour only one. I guess one time is enough.
And of course once again - Trafalgar square. Second most popular meeting point in London. After the Piccadilly of Circus of course.
Have to admit - such a wonderful weather after all.
At the center of the square is the tall Nelson's Column which was built to commemorate the victory of Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson over the French fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar on the 21st of October 1805.
Found an interesting brick sign that are so popular in Italy.
Ferrari in the center of London. Very nice.
And here is the Piccadilly Circus itself. One of the busiest and most popular crossroads in the world. And the meeting point for thousands of people every day.
Five streets meet at one point here.
Main BBC building.
Love London. What else can I say?
And now it was time for the conference.
I'm not gonna say much about it here. In general this is a conference where leaders of the Sharing Economy like Airbnb, ETSY, ZipCar, Yelp, TaskRabbit, LendingClub and so many more joined the stage to tell us about the sharing economy experience.
If you are interested more in this conference please see my report about it on my personal web page.
Here is a presentation of the google Glass for example.
Lunch time. Could you wish for a better place? Almost right in front of the Big Ben.
So many people all at one place.
Here is another view from the window. Really like it here.
And here is the Piccadilly Circus later in the evening. I guess it never sleeps. Once it gets dark the streets are even more beautiful.
The name 'Piccadilly' originates from a 17th century frilled collar named piccadil. Roger Baker, a tailor who became rich making piccadils lived in the area. The word 'Circus' refers to the roundabout around which the traffic circulated.
And in fact- this is one of the busiest roundabouts in London. Even at night.
Time to go back home. Gatwick airport from above.
Flying over United Kingdom.
Sunset over the Baltic sea. Almost home.comments powered by Disqus
