Tower Bridge with Olympic Logo

Tower Bridge has a groovy Olympic theme in advance of the London 2012 Olympics in just a few days. That's all good; unfortunately they then ruin it with a light show of apparently randomly generated silly colours after dark. This makes it look like some billionaire from Las Vegas has installed it outside his casino. Classy.

    Brenaly Chisman Tyler Randall Xvant Samuel Rolo allisonherreid Klaus Jessen re2_king Thanks for your thoughts everyone. I am undone -- Mr King has exposed my inspiration! Indeed -- I love the Potter artwork and have been thinking about it for some time. My image of the Shard here:

    is themed similarly. It's fun, and easy to do, and can turn a mundane snap into a dramatic one.

    Thanks for 5k views! :) Alex Earle Alice Gould Frederic Foo Norbert Králik In just a week or so, this has become my number one most viewed and most-favourited shot by a million miles. And it was a snap I took almost randomly as I walked past. I live and work in London; I see this view every day. Mad.

    Thanks to everyone who has commented and favourited this. Perhaps this is the right shot at the right time, but I'm grateful for the comments, the favourites (more than I have replied to here, but I do mean everyone). Frankly, dammit, I'm glad of the attention! Thank you all.

    I'm so surprised I haven't commented on this. Great shot. The composition is great and I love the pop of color the Olympic Rings provide.
