Best of Lynda's London photography

London has buildings of all shapes, sizes and colours, from many eras. Some new buildings are among the most gorgeous gothic and victorian buildings lavishly decorated with ornate carvings. Some newer buildings are quite plain and are easily dismissable as part of the best architecture in the world but many have a story to tell.
The new Globe Theater is the first and only building allowed to have a thatched roof since the great fire of London in 1666. It was built and designed exactly as the original theater where Shakespears 'Twelth Night' was originally performed. From the river it is situated to the left of the old Southwark power station.
A short distance passed Tower Bridge is the site of the new and extremely expensive Lord Mayor's Assembly Building. Londoner's call it Ass for short. As you can see it juts out at an unusual angle. The center of the glass building has a circling stair or slope that can be seen when close to the building. (I hope to get those close-ups soon).
