Photo Gallery » London one day trip

A few hours in London is far too little to see this giant metropolis but it allows you to feel the atmosphere of the city. I flew from Gdansk to London-Stansted airport ... It is about 70 km from the center of London. To Victoria Station in London I arrived by bus easyBus for less than 10 pounds. There began a walk with Olympus in London. I took pictures with the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II lens M.Zuiko Digital 12-40 mm f / 2.8 ED PRO. It is a pity that I have no Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100 mm f / 4.0 IS PRO, which is perfect for such trips - I will have to buy it.
