London Study Abroad

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I studied abroad.

royal albert hall

Museum of Natural History London

The Tower of London

Big Ben, House of Parliament

Westminster Cathedral72dpi

trafalgar square

And almost ten years later, my awesome personal slave, I mean husband, scanned my negatives for me and used the miracle that is Photoshop CS3 to stitch them together. Thank you, Alex!

Mostly I am just posting these because certain of my friends have been posting about a certain trip to a certain set of islands, which has inspired me with a certain jealousy.

Panoramic composite photos have just become my new standard for love.

It seems I was a very different person in those long ago days. I remember when I was the stage manager, rubbing shoulders with the stars, keeping complex theatrical productions running smoothly, and generally being all that I admire(d) in the world: Organized, important, competent, and powerful. (And I got to wear a lot of black, which I looked great in.) A long time ago....sometimes I miss that me, that life.

I am jealous of YOUR having studied in London. Awesome.

The mister and I went to London in 1984...we were the original accidental tourists - didn't have a clue about where to go or what to see...and in our stupor we stumbled upon the royal motorcade...which included the queen, Princess Diana, Prince Charles, Edward and Fergie and the Francoise Mitterand, then the president of France! Thanks for the memories your post gave me...one day I'd like to go back...but probably only in my dreams! xo, Nan

Beautiful photos.

If I have one regret from college, it is that I never bothered to save enough for a study abroad opportunity (especially the British Isles Author Excursion). That was stupid.

Dang Gina! (Not that your name is Gina. It's more just a figure of speech.)

Those are some sweet pictures!

I, for one, am jealous.
