Pictures need to do the talking today.

I'll give you some minor details to give some context.
6:30 pm on Sunday I flew to London, England to meet up with Jamie.
I arrived at 7 am Monday morning at Heathrow.
We wandered London and ate some Indian food.
By 3:00 we were at a different airport headed to Edinburgh, Scotland.
Here are some pictures thus far.
It's been too lovely for words.

Enjoy :D

She's lovely and funny.)

After this point in the day, I let my camera take a breather.
But Jamie blogged a pretty hysterical summary of our late afternoon and evening,
memories captured via my iPhone 4.
You should check it out ;)

Tomorrow we head to St. Andrews to see more of the work of His hands,
the people He loves,
and lands He's created.
I'm too excited to even dream.

  9. Those are some great-looking locations! Something tells me you didn't shot all of these with your 50mm, or did you? It looks like both you and Jamie have L lenses; very nice. :)

    These pictures look great, Kristen; go
    I'd love to go over there; I so want to get photos of cathedrals, castles, and other buildings like that...and the landscapes are great as well.
