Happy New Year from London

Well it's officially 2012 in London and I just thought I would show you a few photos from the past few days.
Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace

Some treasures from the British museum.
Wall painting from the tomb of Nebamun.
The Portland Vase.
Head of the horse of Selene from the Parthenon.  Way too many pictures to show you here.
The Painted Chapel in Greenwich.
and for all you Tudor fans the site of the original home of the Tudor palace and birthplace of Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, and Mary I at Greenwich.

Two of the ravens at the Tower of London.

Some graffiti at Beauchamp Tower at the Tower of London site by a prisoner.

And finally the view of the Tower Bridge from the wall at the Tower of London.

That's all for now.  Wishing you a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2012!

  2. Really cool photos, wish my camera could take pictures like that. Happy New Year.

    First time poster here, wanted to say that your art lesson plans are really awesome. I will be student teaching next semester (I live in the U.S.) and am looking for some good lesson plans to experiment with.

    Thanks again, and can't wait to look at more of your stuff. :)

  3. Wow! i have just been on al tour of London, thanks! What a wonderful trip filled with all kinds of photo opportunities. Have a great time.

  4. I have enjoyed perusing your blog - I am an art teacher in Saskatoon and although I'm not teaching in the classroom right now I plan to try a few of your projects myself! Have a lovely trip overseas.
