We had to go up to The City yesterday to do some ' financey ' things and got blown all the way up Bishopsgate and into the Eastcheap offices of our financial advisor.
Even though Storm Diana was knocking me sideways, I still managed a few photographs, even though they are a bit wonky ! I am always taken with the massive new modern buildings which seem to be getting higher and higher, and the way the old buildings nestle against the new .....
..... I love this little church ... I think this is the one that got damaged by an IRA bomb, along with many other buildings, in 1993 ..... with The Gherkin towering above it.
Part of St Botolph's, also damaged in 1993 ..... with a new building next to it.
The Monument to The Great Fire of London 1666 .....
Look at the size of this one ....... when you look up at it, you nearly fall over .... well, I do !!!
We had a wonderful lunch in Giorgio, Ristorante Italiano in Leadenhall Market ..... I love Leadenhall Market and it looked even lovelier, dressed up for Christmas ..... Christmas starts here.
Are you starting your Christmas preparations yet ?
