Sunday Bridges - Stroll over Westminster

Westminster Bridge, the oldest in London, with its Gothic arches was opened in 1862. At the time it was badly needed to help relieve the badly congested routes of the Strand and Oxford Streets from London Bridge.

The green paint work of the bridge is the same colour as the leather seats in the house of commons.

Other Sunday Bridges can be seen courtesay of host Louis La Vache.

And in the distance you can see the red Lambeth Bridge, painted the same colour as the seats in that end of the Palace Of Westminster, the House Of Lords.

I love this shot. There is so much to see. The amazing detail of the bridge, that distant bridge, the dense skyline, the boats along the bank and finally, that wonderful Buddhist monk in his saffron robes! Fantastic capture.

I should have thought that was a fairly rare sight - a Buddhist monk on a London bridge? But his robes are a lovely contrast to the green.

A study in contrasts of architecture, time, color, and cultures. Well caught.

Tash said...

It couldn't of come out more perfect. Wow. I adore all the details, the light post, the mosaic, the railing, and OF COURSE, the monk, the bridge in the background, the stacked buildings.

I love the amazing views that you get either side of Westminister Bridge. It is quite probably my favourite bridge as far as views are conerned in London.
