Tower Bridge Is Not Falling Down

My favorite movie is, A Man For All Seasons. It's a film about Sir Thomas Moore and Henry the Eighth. When I was recently in England, Yun kept telling me I would love to see Tower of London. It's the joint where Henry tortured and whacked all of his rivals, including Tommy Moore. Every time we are in London she asks me if I want to go there to see it. I always say no. I can be difficult like that sometimes. Finally she dragged me there. Tourists stretched as far as the eye could see. People had to wait on lines for hours to get into anything once inside the walls. We stayed for 5 minutes. The Tower Bridge was right outside the walls. I chose to draw that instead. Sorry Sir Thomas.

Great Drawing! However, this is actually the Tower Bridge. The actual London Bridge is significantly less impressive. A common mistake.

I stand corrected. Thanks Cory.
