    I love Big Ben, it is England’s landmark, is sad to know the building around it is falling apart and could at any time go up in flames. 🤦🏻‍♂️

    I Love Big Ben The entire clock Tower. Ive just been wondering if they are ever going to install an elevator inside the tower? It really needs one and they should do it.

    Went to London last week for vacation. Took wonderful photos of Big Ben. So glad the construction work was done. I would have been really sad to see all that stuff covering it

    Big Ben is now 163 years old

    And it was built on Tuesday 31st May 1859.

    I don't really know about anyone else but for myself, the new colour scheme on the clockface is going to take quite a bit of getting used to with the gold and the Prussian blue paint.

    I am aware of the reasons why it was painted like this as it's how it was originally but it's the first time in my own lifetime that I have saw it painted in these colours as opposed to how it was before restoration work began last decade.

    I know that it's a form of Blue paint called Prussian Blue but it does look like a form of Purple at first glance.

    Still, a nice change if a bit weird.🥴

    Can we know why the visit of BigBen is forbidden to foreign tourists ?
    Is it related to terrorist risks or other reasons ?

    1:36 Can we stop this annoying visual cliche of starting a shot all blurry and coming into focus? Just start the shot in focus. Waiting for it to come in to focus is like the internet of 20 years ago and waiting for a photo to download and slowly get clearer, its dumb

    Imagine travelling to London in the old days through pokey little villages and over rolling hills, having never seen anything higher than a few stories and then you get to the capital city and see that beautiful clocktower, would be a sight to behold
