Fifty People One Question

i came across this in my dailycandy today, and just had to share it with everyone. im mildly obsessed.

new york


new orleans

apparently a new fifty people one question will be put up tomorrow, and it was made in london. so be sure to check it out, i know i will!

it makes you would you answer the question?

Tower Bridge

Sunday ended up being a pretty nice day, so we opened the blinds and decided to stop being lazy. We decided to take a walk to see Tower Bridge, since neither of us had been there before.

We took the tube to London Bridge and walked along the south side of the Thames river over to Tower Bridge. It was such a nice walk, there is a nice boardwalk along the river with shops and restaurants, i can only imagine how nice it is in the summer! once we made it to Tower Bridge we walked a little further past it and then turned around to cross over the bridge. its pretty impressive im not going to lie. its definitely a 'must see' when visiting london.

after crossing the bridge we continued to walk along the river on the north side. Right next to Tower bridge ont he north side is the Tower of London. We didnt get a chance to go inside, but it looked really cool...history buffs would love it. At that point our 2 hours of sunlight were up for the day, the clouds rolled in and the wind picked up, so we headed back home.

all in all a great little sunday adventure :)

the holidays are over

well, its official...the holidays are over. we took our christmas tree down this weekend, my poinsettia is nearly bare (although that could be because of my lack of a green thumb) and the christmas music channels are now silent. i have to admit, im a little sad. even though the holidays normally create a lot of panic and stress for many people, i have to say i love them. i even love elbowing my way through crowds doing christmas shopping. call me crazy :)

we went to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit today at the National History Museum. it was our first time to the museum, and im glad that we went. the building itself is amazing, it is housed in the Waterhouse building, here is the link if youre interested.

anyway, the exhibit was great, there were winners and runner ups presented for a variety of categories. i have to say though, the winning photographer didnt impress brian or i, or our friends that we went with. i think the most interesting categories they had were the childrens competitions. They had one for kids under 10, 11-14 and 15-17. To see the photographs that the under 10s produced were amazing! made me start thinking more about that dSLR camera ive been wanting...

i hope you all had a nice weekend and a happy new year!
