Another from the London collection – Big Ben itself! Well, actually, I suppose that is incorrect since ‘Big Ben’ is the name given to the famous bell. I believe the structure goes by the name of St. Stephen’s Tower. Please don’t shoot me down if Google has failed me in finding this out…
My reasoning for including “Not So Big Ben” in the title is simply because when I first set eyes on the world-famous structure, standing across the road in awe, I was amazed at how much smaller the tower actually was, and how thin it stood. When seeing it on television, I used to think nothing of it and thought it was a broad and very tall work of art. But no, quite the opposite!
Nonetheless, it was still surreal standing there, witnessing something I had only ever seen in films and on television!
