Even on a cold and rainy day, London is a city filled with the endless bustle of local residents and tourists going about their business. A break in the rain gave way to this shot just off of Picadilly Circus on a brisk April day.
Children Chasing Bubbles
Walking along the river, we found a busker who was blowing giant bubbles for children to play with.
Built between 1165 and 1173 by Henry II of England, Orford Castle (Orford, Suffolk; northeast of Ipswich) is presently operated by English Heritage as a historical site.
The Bell Cage
Built in the 15th and 16th centuries, St. Mary's Church in East Bergholt, Suffolk is unique for it's lack of a traditional church bell tower. Due to a halt during the construction of the church, this temporary structure was built next to the church to house the bells. A "temporary" structure that still remains some 500 years later.
This unique arrangement leads to the only place in the world where bells are rung in this manner. As opposed to traditional ringing where ropes are pulled from below, bell ringers physically stand next to the bells, throwing them manually.
With a weight of 4.25 tons, the bells themselves are also believed to be the heaviest that are run in England today.
