London: Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens

The Albert Memorial on the edge of Kensington Gardens in London was built in 1876 on the order of the Lord Mayor and against the wishes of Prince Albert, who was reportedly quite humble. The nearly 14 foot gilded statue of Albert at the center of the spectacular monument is surround by 187 figures that represent the continents, arts, industries, and sciences.

Photos taken on my two-week trip to London last October (2016). I’ve already got a trip to London planned for this coming October, so I’m hoping to finally catch up on my photos before I am back in Europe.  [35mm taken with my Canon EOS Rebel 2000. For more pictures of London, click here.]

London: 2016 Summer Pavilion by Bjarke Ingels in Hyde Park

Every year, the Serpentine Galleries in Hyde Park commission a temporary pavilion by a well-known architect. When I was exploring Kensington in October 2016, I wandered through Bjarke Ingels’ 2016 pavilion. As you can see from the photos, it was spectacular.

Elsewhere in Hyde Park, I snapped this great shot of Aleksi mid-coffee sip.
