The London Eye

On my birthday (July 2002), a group of us went on the London Eye, which was fun.

This is just after "take off", looking through the outside of the wheel at Westminster:

Looking north over the river - you should be able to see the Queen's Tower (at Imperial College) if you look closely:

This would be a better view of Westminster (houses of Parliament/Big Ben) except for the rain:

Just after the apex, looking into the middle of the wheel:

Looking north-east, towards the BT tower:

Looking down towards the river (effectively a close-up of the bottom of the previous photo) at Charing Cross station and the Hungerford Bridge (I think):

Almost back at ground level now, looking south of the river:
