Earlier this week I spent the day in London with Toddler Adams. It was a significant excursion for several reasons, not least because we’ve been toilet training. This was the first full-scale excursion without nappies and there were no accidents whatsoever!

During the course of the day we ended up eating lunch at a cafe. This cafe was on the third storey of a building in Islington. It had a small balcony outside for smokers.

Although I’m not a smoker, I couldn’t resist venturing outside and taking some pictures when I saw the view. If you’re familair with London, you’ll be able to identify many of the famous structures. If you’re not familiar with London, this Wikipedia page may help.

Starting at the left of the picture you have Canary Wharf and both One Canada Square and Eight Canada Square (though you may need to squint!). Moving to the right I think I can see Strata plus the Heron Tower, the Gherkin (30 St Mary’s Axe), the Walkie Talkie (20 Fenchurch Street) and at the other side of the River Thames the Shard. Look very closely and you’ll even see an aircraft in the sky!

The picture was taken on a Samsung Galaxy S6 mobile phone that I was reviewing. I have had to edit image this image significantly as there was a lot of visual clutter in the forground and the lens could only focus in so closely. It’s been cropped and put through the Lomo filter on Picmonkey.com, a filter I’ve not used before.

I hope you like the final edit. As is my usual habit for this time of the week, I have linked this image to the #MySundayPhoto linky hosted by the Onedad3girls blog. Click on the badge for more.

  1. It’s a fabulous photo. Amazing to see that many landmarks all at the same time and be able to capture them on your phone. There’s no way I could do that on my phone (or even my proper camera tbh). Good news about the toilet training!

  2. This is an awesome photo, I love it so much. Good work on the toilet training too

    Thank you for linking up

    A lovely pic for the wall ๐Ÿ™‚ What a view you must have had; a place to visit just for this reason ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s incredible that you managed to get so many world renowed landmarks in one picture with a mobile phone’s camera! Hope your potty training continues to go well, you must have been so chuffed that there were no accidents. #aNoviceMumCommentLuv

  4. To capture that image quality on your phone camera is really impressive. And the view is just stunning-you had a clear run at the skyline with pm many iconic buildings. Postcard perfect!
    v. Impressive – the image & the potty training!
