Today I am sharing a few shots from my trip London. Every-time I visit I see something in a new light.
And this time I was marvelling at the way new and old blends so beautifully. All the reflections and shadows the building throw, blended with gorgeous old buildings that would have many a tale to tell.

I must say I’ve come to quite like the mix of old and modern in cities now.
I know there is something quite beautiful about how it all brands together so well isn’t there Fiona x
You are so right, they really do compliment each other – I love the angle of the first one x
Thanks so much, yes they really do x
I always love walking among London’s new buildings – such a fantastic contrast with the old. The view looking back from Tower Bridge is my favourite as you can see the city’s most modern additions set against St Paul’s.But I always love the way you can be walking around the City and the Shard or the Walkie Talkie will suddenly pop out from behind buildings or between streets.
Tim that is exactly what I loved its just such an inspiring view, and always so different depending on your direction and the weather which for me makes it more exiting x
Say what you like about London, it is extraordinarily photogenic. Love the mix of old and new in these images. #MySundayPhoto

Wow! Stunning shots and the old and new certainly do compliment each other. I need a trip to London! #Mysundayphoto
It is just lovely isn’t it, I so love the contrast it is such a wonderful place to wander x
Love love love London. I used to work in Moorgate and it looks just like this with old buildings next to sharply contrasted new ones but complimentary in a weird kind of way!
Yes it shouldn’t work should it? But it so does x
Brilliant shots. I always tell people visiting London to look up!
That is great advice Afra, that is where all the detail is x
Lovely photos! This is exactly what we did last time we went to London – wandered around and photographed all the stunning new buildings and taking in the contrast between the old and the new.
Its just incredible isn’t it Sarah, I am such a pain to walk around London with as I am constantly stopping x
London is one of my favourite cities for this very reason #MySundayPhoto
I know its just breathtaking isn’t it? x
This is one of the things I love about London, you’ll always find a modern building near a historic place. Beautifully shown off
Thank you for linking up
Thanks Darren and yes there is always something to see x
I love walking in the City with its mixture of old and new buildings. Love the way the old buildings are reflected off the new in the first photo. There’s always so much to look at in London isn’t there? 🙂
Yes there is, I could literally wander for hours x
Great pictures, London is such a dynamic place and constantly changing. #MySundayPhoto
Yes it is, it makes it so exciting to visit x
Loved this juxtaposition of the old and the new, London is quite a melting pot, which I personally LOVE.
Me to Nano, it find it quite exciting to see the new and old together x
It is so amazing how the old blends in with the new….I hadn’t noticed this before.
Thanks Kim is something that really strikes me overtime I visit x
I love London and have deep roots there. My ancestors lived in the City of London. There is a medieval church, St Olaves in Hart Street, with skulls over the doorway! Very spooky but I love how it is in the shadow of the Gherkin.
Ooh I was stood for ages looking at that church it is fascinating, my family are from the East End, Bow, so I feel exactly the same x
London’s such a beautiful wealth of history. Every time I walk round the centre, I can’t help thinking about all the millions upon millions of people who’ve tramped through the same place. I love your pictures!
Nell thanks so much and yes I am exactly the same, it just fascinates me all those lives, different stories and in one place x
