The statute of limitations on this post has expired!
Note the date: This post was originally published in 2007 and is kept here largely for archival purposes. Anything older than three years may contain ideas and opinions for which such a gap of time has likely reshaped, altered, softened, re-jigged, or otherwise changed those ideas and opinions to a state incongruent with my current existence.
As promised, the photo reveal continues. I’ve pretty much uploaded most of what I’m going to upload. Between the new albums and the foot pictures, I’ve put up over 450 new pictures. That should give anyone an idea of what we saw. As of writing this, I’ve not put captions to all the pictures though. So if you need captions you should wait until I reveal the albums here because that means they are complete.
Thus, on with it…
Album The Third
Two very important things deserved a small collection of photos: We had to get around somehow, and at the end of the day we needed a place to lay our weary heads.
The above image links to London in Transportations and Lodgings, and it may answer such questions as: How many Karins fit inside a telephone booth? Where is the smallest bathroom in the world? And, how do lazy dukes and lazy tourists travel across a large palace grounds?
Album The Fourth
Over the ten days we found ourselves twice ascending high above the city. First, we looped into the air in the safety of the sealed pods of the London Eye. Later, we climbed a vertigo-inducing series of narrow staircases through the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral the Golden Gallery at its top. Both offered opportunities for a shutterbug like me to get a little click happy. If you like that sort of thing, high up views of big cities, this album is for you.
The above image links to London in High Up Views, and it may answer such questions as: How well can Brad tell North from South? How many tourists can you fit inside an aerial pod before they start taking photos of each other? Why are there so many darn cranes?
Album The Fifth
She’ll proudly admit it if you ask. Karin went to London to see shows. And shows we saw. Four, in fact. In just ten days that’s a lot. Of course no photos during performances, but there are plenty of shots of the fronts and insides of the theaters.
The above image links to London in Theater, and it may answer such questions as: How big was Karin’s smile when she scored tickets to the Lion King? Why does everyone see green when they come out of Victoria Station? How many people consider themselves commoners in the modern age of Shakespearian Theater?
