"Bridge Over Troubled Waters" - Simon and Garfunkel, 1970

I'm writing from Greenwich tonight - the Greenwich that's part of London, not the one in Connecticut or the "village" in NYC. I'm running a one-day training course in Canary Wharf tomorrow, so this is a very short trip.

I got in early enough this afternoon to take a few photos in/around Greenwich, but I just don't have time this evening to post them all. I promise to do that during the week.

However, I did want to post one photo tonight.

As there was a disruption on the Docklands Light Railway today, I took a taxi down here to Greenwich from the train station. It was a fabulous day - a perfect day to take a driving tour through London!

The icing on the cake was that my cab driver took me across Tower Bridge. I don't get to do that often. And given the state of the world's economies right now, I think the title song is probably more appropriate than any of us would care to admit!

Here's a shot I took - using my "mobile" - out the back window of the cab as we crossed the Thames. It's a slightly different angle on Tower Bridge, isn't it?

More in a few days!

Nice shot... looks like a very wide angle lens too. Have a good day tomorrow.

I freaking love London, only been there about 8 hours total in my life but took one of those red bus tours and had such a magical day.

And is the Thames water troubled tonight?

If you get the chance it's worth going up inside Tower Bridge. You get a fantastic view of London from the twin walkways up at the top.
