This is the first of two photos that I took of this famous London landmark which gets its name from the bell inside. As I look up at the clock face of this historic building, I had an awareness of so many millions over the centuries who have stopped to view this tower. Whether it was to take in the view on foreign soil, or to set their watch, this well known attraction has seen so much history, and for a moment all those who view it are part of that vast history. If you have never visited, please do someday.
