And if you wander back towards Waterloo station from the Royal Festival Hall, you'll probably pass by Archdukes at the top of Concert Hall Approach (and notice the Boris Bikes in the foreground, a latter-day feature of the London landscape ;).

A dramatic Petersfield sky, a South Bank whirly-gig…and Jessica in excelsis

Taken through a train window at Petersfield station, en route from Portsmouth to Waterloo this evening…

A South Bank whirly-gig, in the Priceless London Wonderground, not far from the London Eye.

I can’t speak for anyone else, but I witnessed the climax to Jessica’s wondrous gold-winning Olympic performance, in the company of several dozen other noisy and enthusiastic souls, in this free showing at the Royal Festival Hall this evening…and what a way it was to win a gold medal…or three ;).

Down by the riverside…

The London Eye, around 8.45 am this morning…

A London skyline, upstream from Hungerford Bridge…done in cyan.
