great places to visit off the beaten path.
Our Third Photo Challenge.
For our third London photo challenge there are five sites pictured below from all over central London. While the primary theme of LondonUnveiled.com is to create awareness of “off the beaten path” sites, these five images all come from more touristy locations. Whether you are a visitor to London or live here it is easy to miss some of the things that are in front of us. Can you identify them? I never know if these will be simple or hard so I’ve tried to vary the difficulty level. Go ahead and post a comment with your best answers. Correct answers will be posted in about a week.
(1) This image is of a memorial sculpture that is 10m (32 ft) tall atop an iconic building in London. Unveiled in 2008 the shape was inspired the the steeple of the neighbouring church. At night it glows. There is a clue in the words you can read. Do you know the name of this sculpture, where it is and what is memorializes?
(2) London is filled with statues, but most seem to be Royals or politicians. This is neither and it’s not Shakespeare. Where is this statue located and who is it of? The location is fitting for this person.
(3) A wonderful little building in one of the busiest parts of London, but surprisingly not that well known. Where is it and what is it?
(4) One of the most storied and popular small parks in London. Usually when photos of this park are taken it is of the area just off camera to the right. What park is this?
(5) Is this one too easy? The banners and building name have been pixelated to avoid cheating. The recent renovations have made this UNESCO World Heritage site a London highlight.
