Courtesy of my travel-loving parents, I had the opportunity to visit London at a very young age. During that trip, I was enamored and captivated by the famous clocktower, which I happily pronounced as “Big-uh Ben.” London’s Big Ben clocktower, as seen at night from the busy streets below To me, Big Ben is the most iconic of all the classic structures in the country. The above image was captured by putting my tripod in the middle of an intersection and letting oncoming traffic pass me by to get the motion trails. The top red lines are double decker buses, by far the most fun way to get around London. According to the fine folks at Wikipedia Big Ben is located at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London. It is the largest four-faced chiming clock and the third-tallest free-standing clock tower in the world. Big Ben first chimed on April 10, 1858.
