An Unexpected Sight

Today while walking through the high-rise business district of the City of London, we stumbled across the ruins of Saint Dunstan of the East. This centuries-old parish church was bombed during World War II and only the outer walls and tower are still standing. In the years since, trees have been left free to grow throughout, resulting in what is at once breathtaking and eerie.

For me, coming upon this scene unexpectedly was a truly incredible experience. This is a reminder of the history of London, both impressive and tragic. I don't think I will ever fail to be amazed by the little nooks of history nestled amongst so much modernity. I have so much love for this city!
