I’ve been inside the Tower of London before, and while it’s one of my favorite activities in London, it’s also not free; I didn’t want to pay to do the same tour again, and so, while my visiting friends went inside, I opted instead to explore the outskirts with my camera on this misty, moody English afternoon.
The area is one of the most crowded in London (from my experience, at least), and there were tourists everywhere. Some might find that annoying, but I thought it was sort of nice. In this one little area of the world, so much of that world packed in together. All of these people here for the same view, to walk the same street, hundreds of years old.
