Sunny morning stroll in the park

---+++Donut's Daily Daguerreotype+++---

Walking from Embankment tube station early in the morning, I took this picture of the Adelphi building (left) and the Shell-Mex building (right). The park is Victoria Embankment Gardens, constructed on reclaimed land in the mid-19th century - known as the Embankment. Off camera to the left is the Watergate, the original north bank of the Thames.
