I had a way into the City of London for a meeting and then I planned to visit a gallery. But an unpredicted discovery changed my plans.
I needed to take a folder with some paperwork with me, which I quickly stacked into my backpack and went for the tube. The meeting was all good, and when I reached for the documents, I found a surprise: apparently, I didn't take out my wide-angle lens from the bag after returning from my recent trip to Scotland. With this revealed, I just popped the lens on my camera (which, no surprise here, I had on me) and opted to capture the One Lime Street on a wide-angle instead - something I wanted to do since I walked in the area the first time.
But before I got there, I've enjoyed the busy streets,
..variety of facades...
..and hidden sculptures..
...then I passed by construction sites..
..went by the legendary 30 St Mary Axe...
..and soon I stood under my goal..
.. the One Lime Street.
What a building!
With this done, I explored some backstreets of the area..
..took a look at the city hall over the Thames ..
...and slowly went back home.
As for the exhibition, I went to see it just a day later. Oh, joys of life.
