Out in front of the London Portrait Gallery, in Trafalgar Square, left-leaning Londoners were beginning to assemble for a big anti-war protest.

(Incidentally, the church in the background is St. Martin's in the Field, where we heard a fabulous Good Friday performance of Mozart's "Requiem").
Two crazy foreign lovers sit in the mist of a Trafalgar Square fountain.
An inside view of the dome of Temple Church, built by the Knights Templar.
While the DaVinci Code folks were taking pictures of the knights' effegies under the Temple Church dome, I was entranced by the scores of bizarre stone faces on the wall.

Two more crazy lovers, immortalized in a statue by St. Paul's Cathedral.
Thus begins my photographic homage to St. Paul's Cathedral. That's the Millenium Bridge in the foreground.
St. Paul's was across the Thames from our usual lunching spot, hence all the pictures. This is really a picture of the sky anyway.
Designed by illustrious architect Christopher Wren, St. Paul's Cathedral featues a huge classical dome supported by heavy flying buttresses. Can't see the buttresses? They're hidden in the false upper story.
The current St. Paul's Cathedral is not the first. The previous St. Paul's Cathedral, reportedly one of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in the world, was destroyed in the Great Fire of London.
