Pictures from Downtown London, England

Valerie and I first visited London in the spring of 1995. I've been visiting the old country fairly regularly since that time, retreating with Anglican Benedictine's, and visiting our friend in London. Over these years of visiting, I haven't grown tired of journeying downtown and looking at all the iconic structures, and feeling the energy of all the visitors and people.
