Summer in the City | Photography Scavenger Hunt | Summer 500

We began this first full week of the summer holidays with a spot of culture.
Which allowed for a few more finds on the Photography Scavenger Hunt list.
#1: A sign welcoming people to your hometown (or a nearby town).
Welcome to the City of London.  The Square Mile.  Home to the UK's Financial Centre. And where The Brainy One's clients are.
I tried with The Boy Child acting as a guide to the board's size, but what with his body positioning and the light, it was a no-go.
#4: A group of tourists.
Hanging out on the plinth of the Eros statue on Piccadilly.
I'm not sure why anyone would want to do that.
Check out the throngs of people on the steps of St. Paul's Cathedral. (Our destination this morning)
Photographing the cathedral from ground level does not do it justice at all.
You need an aerial shot (like the view on this postcard).
Photography is not allowed inside the cathedral, so you'll have to make do with this sneaky shot of postcards showing what the interiors are like (and that would be #5 on the list).
#6: An urban street scene.
The view from St. Clement Danes on the Aldwych.
I've been wondering how Kirsty plans to document 500 images of summer.
Does Facebook count?
And does she use Instagram?
Do any of you really want to see 500 images of summer on this blog?
I'm concerned that even I will become bored with looking at all those photos.
474 to go.
Thoughts welcome.

Go with the flow. If you manage to take 500 then that's amazing if each one is significant. I love your sign picture, that has encouraged me to keep looking for a better example.

Love the sneak postcard pic!

I take 500 photos every summer.

Then I delete 400 of them because they are blurry or people walked in front of them or someone's finger is over the lens or DH has used his normal "just hold your finger over the button and take a dozen shots, surely one will turn out" method of picture taking. :)

I don't mind photo heavy posts - we can always skim after all. No idea what I'd do with 500 photos but collages per day might be fun.
