A Sneak Peak of the City--London, England

The city is comprised of greys and blues, but when the light hits it right, the urban scene lights up--London is best viewed from dusk. The skyline of London is different from many of the cities I've been to; it's conglomeration of old, new, modern, restored. Devastation of the original city during the great London fire and destruction to many parts of the city during WWII stimulated phases of rebuild, creating the unique architectural panoramic that London has today. London is a true modern city adapting to modern technologies (seen most prominently through the transportation system) and the lifestyles of it's residents, yet it still clings to it's history, preserving the culture of the city.
