Quick Shot: London Eye

There are so many iconic things in London, but there is a new icon on the London skyline. Although it lacks the history of other landmarks in London, it has become a popular spot for visitors to take in great views of the city. 

Of course I'm talking about the London Eye, a massive ferris wheel that sits across from Big Ben. The wheel, which has numerous little glass capsules, takes 30 minutes to complete a full rotation. 

We rode the London Eye for the views of the city, but along the trip I had the idea to frame up a shot of London that included one of the glass capsules. I wanted to have a different photo of the London Eye from the traditional images, and I thought this was a neat way to capture several icons at once.
