The sun has it's charm around London but there is something
about those grey skies that I find enchanting...almost Dickensesque.
On this misty morning, I made my way from Waterloo to St. Paul's.
I like to gather my thoughts after a long walk and this seemed
like the perfect spot. From my chair I had the best vantage point.
St. Paul's Cathedral is so enormous that it is nearly
impossible to capture it in it's entirety.
To me, the story is in the details.
I did not realise at this point in time that we were about to embark
to the top of St. Paul's Cathedral. When we did, it made for an
interesting study as I looked up and then down.
I often find that far reaching views in a large cityscape
can be monotonous. I like to look for the interesting features.
The sun was peaking thru the clouds here...just barely.
For someone who does not like heights, I found this overwhelming
yet was mesmerised by the detail...windows, people,
lines, lines, lines, everywhere you looked.
It was so nice to come back down and rest my eyes
on something peaceful.
