    I recently travelled to certain parts of Europe and I took many pictures along the way. I'm not going to bore you(hopefully) with the more mundane pics of London, Paris, etc, so I thought I'd just post the pics that most of you might be interested in. Keep in mind these pics are very large files between 300-600kb. Enjoy!

    Beatles, Floyd, movie soundtracks and so on.
    -For those that don't know, St. John's Wood is a very
    nice and expensive part of London where...

    You've got to strike, when the moment is right, without thinking...


    Awesome pics, Gary! The Floyd/Beatles associations are very cool indeed! [​IMG]

    Cool pics at Abbey Road! Of course, it's a once-in-a-lifetime dream to go there just to recreate the classic Beatles' stroll across the street.

    London and Paris are great. I would love to go back to both. I would also love to see some other parts of Europe like Sweeden for example.

    My wife has been to Spain, Ireland and Denmark as well and enjoyed them all.

    Nice to see the pix, both to bring back memories and sort of share in yours. I have a great version of your Siene shot of ND, but at sunset (by luck) and coming from the other side of the island (so shifted to the left).

    We never visited Battersea Powerstation but I wish we had. Great shots of that.

    We had a heat wave when we were in England and the hotel rooms got a bit unbearable at times (no A/C because normally you don't need it), so don't knock the lack of sunny days. [​IMG]

    Wow, those Stockholm pics really took me back. Probably my favorite place I have ever been in Europe. It looks a bit more modern since I was last there in 88.

    Nice work on the pics, as you can tell from my sig.[​IMG]

    Glad you guys like! [​IMG] I shot 12 rolls of film in all and had them developed straight to CD-Rom.
    Actually out of the 3 countries I visited I would agree with you: Stockholm was my favorite. I felt comfortable there despite the 2 degree celsius temperature. I was enchanted, smitten, whatever you want to call it. I was staying in Gamla Stan(Old Town) at the very nice Rica Gamla Stan hotel. I am definitely going back during the Summer!
