I was editing some more travel photos today, and I realized how woefully few photos I posted from such an epic trip. Since I am drowning in England feels, having edited more photos and just seen World’s End for the second time (which convinced me that it’s a perfect film), I thought I’d remedy that tonight.

Here are some photos taken from our visit to the Tower of London (most of them have meant-to-be-helpful captions):
