New Scotland Yard

This is a photo from my 2005 trip in London.  Sure, I hit the usual tourist places and some lesser known haunts, but going to Scotland Yard was kind of a kick for me.  As you can see, it was a bright warm day - not your average weather.  I love the reflection of the city off the glass building and barriers.  There is also a slight reflection of the rotating sign off the granite wall to the right.  This is a straight out of the camera shot.

Jolie évocation, du nouveau et de l'ancien sur le même plan.

Mythical, those reflections... Well done !

The reflections you got in this shot take the prize. They are superb. When I think of Scotland Yard, I think of something OLD instead of this building where they are housed. I was so shocked to see the structure for the first time. This is an awesome shot in my book.

Wonderful capture: I like how the image of the old building is "imprinted" onto a modern one...
