Big Ben
 
Had the chance to shoot Big Ben while on a short trip to London. WOW! It's sooooooo CROWDED on the Westmister Bridge!!!! My lovely wife stood by my tripod to protect it from being knocked over :D Glad my photo came out so I don't have to go through this again :p

Thanks for looking guys!

Wow you really pulled off a great shot in spite of the crowd. Just behind you a bit are stairs going down to a door that James Bond entered to have a meeting with M in one of the latest movies.

Thanks Bynx! There was another photographer not too far from me. He was setup against the handrail aiming at the London Eye. At times it got so crowded I couldn't see him. He had a larger tripod and by himself. I'm not sure how kept the crowds from pumping into to his tripod :eek: We caught each others eyes once. I should have gone over and chatted with him.

Really? Next time there I will look for the stairs :D
