Whilst I always try to capture my travels when on business, I am inevitably more focussed on the task at hand.  Phone-calls and discussions with colleagues mean many opportunities are simply missed.  Being on holiday allows me more concentration on my photography.

This post summarises my journey – looking out of my window seat.  My favourite shot is the one above of the Thames and Houses of Parliament.  Have a look at the larger version for more detail.

I was on a BA flight – but the sight of many KU airplanes on one side of the airport was a rare one – even for me.  Unless I have to, I refuse to fly Kuwait Airways until they privatize…

The captain was on my side.  He showed me Kuwait as we left; and great views of London as we arrived.  The next two are Kuwait City and Salmiya.

The clear skies changed as we flew into Europe.  More and more clouds were gathering.  It was a great sight after the recent dust storms.

Then London appeared in the breaks. The area around the Thames in the first; the second is a more familiar side of town with Hyde Park in the middle.

Last but not least: the final approach is over West London.  Our house is visible – just behind Gunnersbury Park in the distance.  Near side, and just under the wing, is Kew Gardens.

    • Thank you C2B… I will of course post them on KS.

  1. very nice pictures! have fun on vacation. 🙂

  2. A few points:

    “focussed on the tast at hand”
    “Airways until they privitize”

    I make a ton of spelling mistakes because I just write and post! 🙂

    Some very nice shots, and I think London is filled with Kuwaitis right now! Thats why I prefer going during winter, and I like the cold!

      There is no excuse for spelling errors! Fixed.
      Thank you 🙂

      We don’t stay in the centre of London – and most of our visits are not to the ‘usual’ places for Kuwaiti tourists. The only place we can’t avoid – and clearly nor can anyone else – is the shops 🙂

  3. Nice pictures! have a good time
