Contradictions in London - Proper Anarchy

This is one of my favorite photos from the entire London trip. I'm not sure why, but I think I love the contradiction - prim and proper London in the background, such elegant names as King's Cross and Primrose Hill elegant on the sign in the distance, and the anarchy of the word London scrawled atop the bicycle sign in defiant red graffiti, partially obscuring the BT Tower.

I took this shot near Regent Park while waiting for my friend to finish up an appointment with her trainer. I remember wandering through the park, walking past London Business School, enjoying the brightly colored tulips and birds fluttering around, and having "God Save the Queen" by the Sex Pistols randomly shuffle onto my iPhone.

A city of contradictions indeed.
