Man you've got some serious coverage there. Outstanding photography - sublime mix of night shots/golden hour and good old London overcast.

Whereabouts are these units?

Thanks Bedhead.

Those are in Camden, on the canal a bit further east from the locks (near Kentish Town Road).

Fantastic photography! Thank you so much for so many beautiful shots.

London is always amazing. Its diversity is astonishing. I´ve enjoyed watching all your pics, specially those views taken by night, and about people, of course.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

So much material! Paris is still first on my list of European cities to visit one day, but you're certainly making a case for me to change that...

Maybe I was doing it wrong but I paid more for the train than I would have for a flight. Not taking into account transport to and from airport/train station. Train was nice, I'd take it again.

The train price fluctuates hugely, and often there are deals. If you find the right time you can go for very little, and the beauty is you can be in the middle of Paris in no time. I live near Kings Cross so from house in London to the centre of Paris is very quick.

Train is cheap, good deal if you book several weeks before your trip. The earlier you book, the cheaper, so far it's been that simple.
But I recently heard they wanted to alter that benefit, and not in order to make it cheaper... Bad idea, hope they eventually won't.

Trust me, if you choose London you will not be disappointed. I've been to a lot of places in the U.S., Canada, Asia and, Europe. It is still my favorite city. It is impressive. Full of history, diverse, super vibrant, edgy and everything you would want in a great city. Paris is great but you can't go wrong with London.

There really isn't anywhere else like it.

Great street shots, especially love all the smokers!
