london snapshots

our trip to london trip has by far been my most favorite of all our short getaways since moving to italy. one of the perks of military man's job are business trips. we get to travel while he works during the day. we made the best of it while he slaved over at the embassy and even had some needed rest from recently moving into our new house in naples. i had traveled to london before as a chaperone for a school trip and couldn't wait to show my company my favorite parts of the town. well, london didn't disappoint...everybody fell in love with her.

victorian blue...queen victoria's favorite color which is also painted on tower bridge. this picture really says london to me, a city who is mostly gray but with punches of color. they really express themselves with these vibrant and luxurious colors all around the city, which is a direct reflection of who they are. just lovely and vibrant people full of warmth and a zest for life.

  7. I am with Tanya, lets get MOM in some photos...I must tell you all that she is by far the best photographer I have seen (not because she is my wife, but because her passion and skills to photos), she is hard to get in front of the camera. WB (aka Cory) has better luck than me getting MOM in the pictures...MM
