Disposable Camera in Europe

My Mamiya 645 camera stopped working two-thirds through my European vacation, leaving me with only a Polaroid in Amsterdam and Dublin.  I decided to pick up a couple of disposable cameras from the drug store.  I am disappointed not to have photos like in London and Paris, but the disposable results have their own small-town kind of charm.



I still have to take my Mamiya to the camera doctor (International Camera on Wabash).  Perhaps banging over Amsterdam cobblestones in my bike basket did her in.

London Town

London was the first stop on my recent European trip.  This was my second time visiting London and I fell in love with the city even more.

Here are the requisite photographs that scream LONDON:

And here are some from the Victoria and Albert Museum (which has the best gift shop ever).  

And other sights photographed while wandering around on foot...

...and bus...

...and Boris bike.

I would so love to live in London one day.  A great base from which to explore all of Europe while still speaking English on a daily basis.  :)
