Hi All,

it is hard to believe ... but Venice ... at least "Little Venice" is something you really can have in the Citiy of London UK.

So .... let us have a closer look, where to find this LITTLE VENICE in a world metropolis Britain's capital, which stands for very many different things than anything similar to Italy's Venice ....:)

Here we are!

London's Regent's canal goes back to star architect John Nash (also responsible for the Buckingham Palace) who finished it in 1801 to have a transport link to the River Thames

How to get there .... easily .... with London's Tube ..... Central Line and off the coach at Paddington Station ....:)

On your way you pass a very nice place called "Primrose Hill". It is worth to climb it, since you have a wonderful view over London from there.

Camden Market is surely one of London's most colourful, most interesting and most lively places.

It is British, Asiatic and Oriental at the same time ... really multicultural ... :)

Well,

London is such a multi-faceted place ... always worth visiting. Once you have seen all the well known landmarks then take your time to find out the city's secrets. I have been to London an innumerable number of times now ... again and again it is a fascinating place to visit!:)

PHOTOGRAPHY:

I had both of them hanging around my neck ... SIGMA SD9 (10-20mm EX DC) and my SD14 (18-200mm DC OS). So I did not have to change lenses all the time ... which I find annoying sometimes.

See you with nice pictures
