Got Any Pictures of London Architecture?

My younger daughter needs a picture of London architecture for an invitation. Something black and white or a color photo that would look good in black and white. This is a picture I took a couple of years ago from up in THE EYE, the giant ferris wheel on steroids that sits on the edge of the Thames. 

This picture of Parliament and Big Ben has a pointilist quality to it thanks to the gray day and the rain drops on the window of the car we were in. I kind of like it, but I don't know if she does. 

Meanwhile I've scoured Google Images, but nothing yet. And stock photos, but they want your first born to use one of their pictures. 

Any thoughts?

This makes me flashback to my experience in the Eye: August 2004, hot by Chicago standards, hellish by English standards.  There's no ventilation in those capsules, save for a miniscule vent that ensures folks are actually breathing oxygen.  Hottest 45 minutes of my life.  Every once in a while, for old time's sake, I hop over to the nearest Jewel, climb into the rotisserie chicken display, slap a few postcards of Big Ben to the glass, and enjoy the ride.  There's a London Broil for you.

I realize that this has absolutely nothing to do with your plea for help, but I see that you've got at least one picture already.

Do you want a picture of anything in particular ?  I took lots of photos  while I was there last July.  I don't want to bombard you with too many, but if you have anything in mind, let me know.   I'll see what I can come up with.   Tina http://journals.aol.com/nikg2005/Howthingschange/

   It's late.  I need sleep.  Okay, strike that last link I sent, since it's obviously not mine ( although you now know that I do follow the links you list, to check out your recommendations ! )Anyway, I'm at: http://journals.aol.com/onemoretina/Ridealongwithme.  Tina
