Mosaic Monday (or not): London



St. Paul's Cathedral/Buckingham Palace seen through the trees of St. James Park




Westminster Abbey/Portobello Road Market at Notting Hill




Corpus Christi College in Cambridge/Big Ben

Garden at Fenton House (both)




near Kensington Gardens/tree peony at Fenton House


I was not sure if anyone was expecting a Mosaic Monday here today because of the holiday in the United States, but here goes:

These are some of my iphone shots from my recent trip to England.  Some of you may have seen them already on Instagram or Facebook.  I have lots more yet to post, but I also have several portrait sessions to get through in the next few weeks, so editing time is at a premium.

I have attached captions to give you an idea of what each photo represents.  We stayed in the Kensington section of London, and made a few day trips to Cambridge, Richmond and Hampstead to see the architecture and gardens for which England is so rightly celebrated.  I hope to have more images ready to post in the next week or two...  :)

Here are the instructions to join today's post:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
5. Click on "Enter."
6. Please link back to this Mosaic Monday post so that your readers can find other wonderful mosaics.


That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline.net

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  1. I'm not participating other than to say that your photographs are terrific. Looks as if the weather is coolish there as well, but oh how those flowers flourish!

  2. Beautiful photographs...it's a perfect time of year to be in London. I've been there twice and both times that I went it was Spring and Summer....the sights are amazing, the countryside and the gardens are to die for. Hope you enjoyed your trip and I really enjoyed your photos especially since my travelin' days are mostly over now. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Hello, Mary

    I hope you're thoroughly enjoying your trip to England! It's been a few years since I've been and having heard the travel stories of 2 sets of friends who have gone within the past couple of months, I have itchy feet. You photos will make me scratch all the more, so to speak!

    Have fun,
    Karen
