    This was the easiest way to get this photo onto my PowerBook G4 to use as the Desktop wallpaper.

    Yes, I took the picture from the top of The Monument during my London trip in 2014. I think this is the best location for photographing Tower Bridge. If I ever visit London again I want to take a photo of the bridge when open from this location.

    You’ll have to wait a while for a photo with the open bridge, I guess. When my daughter and I visited London the first time, a cab driver told us that this happens rarely nowadays. We were lucky and saw it once during our two visits.

    The bridge is only opened by advance reservation nowadays and you can get the scheduled openings by going here. Bridge Lift Times | Tower Bridge Exhibition

    Here's a view of the open bridge I took on August 21, 2014. The bridge was backlit, which explains the low contrast.
