Big Ben and Houses of Parliament Silhouette

“London goes beyond any boundary or convention. It contains every wish or word ever spoken, every action or gesture ever made, every harsh or noble statement ever expressed. It is illimitable. It is Infinite London.“


Picture taken from the south bank of the river Thames after a ride on the London eye. The Houses of Parliament where the two Houses of the Parliament (the House of Lords and the House of Commons) meet to conduct their business. The palace is one of the largest parliament buildings in the world. The layout of the palace is intricate, with its existing buildings containing nearly 1,200 rooms, 100 staircases and well over three kilometers of corridors. Although mainly dating from the 19th century, among the original historic buildings is Westminster Hall, used nowadays for major public ceremonial events such as lyings in state, and the Jewel Tower.


Tried to give this picture a silhouette look to show of the sunset in the background!
