Some, like the symmetrical, sun-bathed shots of Buckingham Palace and St. Paul’s Cathedral, show off London’s large-scale, monumental grandeur, while others, including photographs of 30 St. Mary Axe and 20 Fenchurch St. (affectionately known as “The Gherkin” and “The Walk Talkie,” respectively) showcase its modern, love-them-or-hate-them skyscrapers. Each unique photo gives a glimpse of life in London, from its tube stations and top tourist attractions to its iconic red double deckers. (Look closely and you’ll spot several of the buses trundling through Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square!)
