I dutifully wandered over to London Bridge at lunchtime to get hoped for photos of the Red Arrows flying overhead and with Tower Bridge in the shot.
As I arrived, I was pleasantly shocked to see the was quite a crowd on the bridge waiting for the fly past as well, and looking around there were crowds on most of the office buildings.
Got some nice photos – but was very annoyed to see Channel 4 this evening and they had put a camera in Parliament Sq and got a stunning shot of the Red Arrows and Big Ben in the same frame. Why on earth didn’t I think of that!
SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.
Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.
