Photo Friday - Big Ben

Big Ben at sunset (London, England)

As I'm sure  you are all aware - at least all of you not currently taking up residence under a rock - the last Harry Potter film was released today in the U.S. This marks the end of an era, and for many (like me), the end of childhood. Therefore, I am incapable of thinking of almost anything but Harry Potter this weekend. I found the movie highly emotional and am still trying to come to terms with the idea that no new book or movie will be forthcoming; there's no longer a "next one." So in order to at least nod to Harry Potter this week for Photo Friday, I chose a picture from London (obviously). London is one of my absolute favorite places in the entire world, and I love this picture of Big Ben standing strong and proud against a beautiful evening sunset. I can almost picture Harry and the gang flying off into the distance on their brooms (or maybe I'll just get my friend to Photoshop them in). *sigh* Mischief Managed. Cheers.

  1. Oh Sweets, this is such a lovely photograph. Capturing something iconic isn't always easy, and you've managed to channel its beauty in one frame. The sunset is an ideal backdrop... as glorious as all Big Ben's details are, I adore it in silhouette form. The fact that only the time isn't complete silhouette is just magical. Well done as always, Sweets. :o)
