The British Museum

It was a dream come true when I finally got the chance to visit one of the most talked about museum in the world, The British Museum. Located in the heart of London, it was just few minutes walk away from my office. Not that I am a fan of museums, but I had heard a lot about it and the main attraction I wanted to see was The Mummy of Cleopatra, the last active pharaoh of Ancient Egypt who  represented herself as the reincarnation of an Egyptian goddess, Isis.

Tate Britain - London

Tate Britain

I have been planning to go to Tate Britain since I visited Tate Modern, but finally I got the chance to be there and witness some of the most talked about paintings and art work in the history of the world. I may not be the correct person to explain about these paintings, but I did try to capture the essence of them. Here I present Tate Britain in pictures through my lens.

Bath, England - The Roman Baths

Bath, England is situated approx 156 kms from London. The city was established as a Spa with a latin name Aquae Sulis ("the waters of Sulis") by the Romans in the 60s AD. Romans built baths and a temple on the surrounding hills of the city Bath in the valley of the River Avon around hot springs.

Christmas in London - Ho Ho Ho!!!

Trafalgar Square
I was lucky to be in London during Christmas season. Enjoying all the festive lights, decorations, delicacies, parties, sales and most important, less work in office.

Instead of coming home after work, I usually wandered in the streets of London carrying my camera to capture amazing memories forever. I hope you cherish them as I do.

Windsor Castle, England

I have been craving to drive since I have been in London. Missing my car, the feeling of sitting on driver's seat and revving up the engine while holding the steering. This was the time to fulfill my desire and me along with my four friends decided to rent a car and go for a road trip to Windsor, Bath and Stonehenge.

Renting a car was a piece of cake and we booked our car a day in advance to be picked up from the car rental agency at 9am on the Saturday morning. I promised myself to be on time and pick the car at sharp 9am as committed, but I was late again as usual. I smartly blamed my other friends for this though deep down I knew it was my fault. After all the blaming game and paper formalities with the car rental company, we finally left for our road trip at 10:30am with sun shining.

Exhilarating Diwali - Let There Be Light!

Despite all the lucrative deals offered by the travel agencies, I have always preferred to celebrate Diwali at home. But this time I am in London, away from my family, missing all the fun, the lights, the sweets, decorated markets, malls and the list goes on.

Tower Bridge, London

Sometimes, you want to capture a picture exactly as you imagined it. To capture that perfect picture, I was standing again near Tower Bridge, setting my camera, cleaning the lens, treating my digital camera as a costly DSLR.

While I waited for the perfect moment to click tower bridge, I was thinking how I mistook Tower bridge as London bridge for years. Well, I was not the only one who thought so. Here's an interesting fact, The City of London sold the original London Bridge to Robert McCulloch of McCulloch Oil and he rebuilt it in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. There is a rumor that Robert McCulloch thought he was getting Tower Bridge instead. Not surprisingly there have been several bridges on the London Bridge site and the present one is just under 40 years old, having been replaced because the previous one was subsiding sideways.
