About This Image

London is a city filled with iconic architecture. It’s populated with buildings that are recognized around the world by people who have never seen them in person. There are maybe a handful of cities with such landmark architecture.

I’m not sure what the most recognized architecture is, but I have little doubt that beautiful Gothic Tower Bridge is pretty high on the list of landmark London architecture. It’s so emblematic of London that I’ve often seen online with footnotes like “The London Bridge” whose actual modern day counterpart further up river is comparatively quite dull and utilitarian. But that just shows how conjoined Gothic Tower Bridge and London are in the minds of people all over the world. It quite simply is The London Bridge to many people. That beautiful Victorian Gothic Revival architecture simply is London for so many people.

I’ve photographed that Gothic bridge on each and every trip to London, and I’ve no doubt however many more times I go, there will be more photographs to come of that London landmark. My heart skips a little each time I see it rising over the waters of the Thames. It’s just unlike any other architecture out there. It was built to be reminiscent of the nearby Tower of London during an era when Gothic revival was all the rage. It’s really a sophisticated piece of architecture clad in a medieval skin.

Yet if I were for some awful reason never to return, I’d consider my pictures of Tower Bridge based on that last trip to be a strong note to end it on. The great golden light that afternoon coupled with the dark skies… wow, what a contrast!

Very dramatic don’t you think?

Have you also stood before Gothic Tower Bridge? Or is such a trip the stuff of dreams? I’d love to hear which camp you are in and why this particular London print appeals to you?

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
