Monument

November 30, 2013  •  1 Comment

The skyline of the city of London is changing rapidly and it is now all to easy to miss the historical gems dotted in and around the modern architecture. Monument as it is referred to today was built as a Monument to the great fire of London. The site in which it was built on was were the fire started back in 1666 and I must have walked past it thousands times without stopping to venture to the top.

For some strange reason I was expecting the climb to feel shorter but the stair case seemed to keep going on and on, but as you reach the open air platform at the top the view was worth it.

I was travelling light and therefore I had my Panny 20mm lens and my OM-D with me for the day.
