The London Eye

While on my way to Iceland a few months ago I had about 10 hours to kill while in London. Thankfully John Godley collected me at the airport and gave me a quick tour of the city centre!

I got loads of photos of the London Eye, here’s one of them.

A Peaceful Tree in Iceland

Four Points Cadiz

Cadiz is a city and port in the Iberian Peninsula in Spain. The centre of the city is filled with old alleys and narrow streets. Here’s I shot straight upwards at the junction of 4 such alleys, I think it was here near the local cathedral.

Many years ago I took a similar photo of buildings in San Francisco.

Symbols of the World

The Star of David, Dollar signs, the Masonic eye, Christian Cross and a symbol I (and Google Goggles) don’t recognise. All on a sticker in the Church of Hallgrimur, Reykjavik, Iceland. In the church tower there’s a door leading from the observation area into the warmth inside. This sticker is over that door.
Stranger yet are the pawns on the half-circle of the world, with a cross and four dots.

It’s either some kids having fun trolling the local Church, or an elaborate conspiracy. Tin foil hat time!
