Waited ages for this picture, and then it’s dusty. Great.
Standing near to Westminster, I was looking at the reflections of the clock tower in passing buses and cabs. I was thinking it would be great if a bus actually stopped and I could get a picture of the reflection of Big Ben. I never knew there were so many wrong kinds of bus. Too dirty. Too adverty. Too non-reflective. Too obscured by a truck/another bus…
I turned my attention to the passing cabs. Iconic? Yes. Good reflections? Yes. Going at breakneck speed around this roundabout? Yes. Impossible to take a photo? Yes. Waited it out, and finally someone decided to get out on the exact corner that I was on. Shame it was a dusty specimen, but I still like the photo. Maybe the dust actually adds something to it. It’s growing on me.
Big Ben is actually the nickname of the bell inside the tower. Apparently the clock tower is the largest four-faced chiming clock tower in the world. Who knew?
