Westminster Palace and Big Ben

Westminster Palace and Big Ben

The Palace of Westminster, also known as the Houses of Parliament or Westminster Palace, is the meeting place of the two houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom—the House of Lords and the House of Commons. It lies on the north bank of the River Thames[note 1] in the heart of the London borough of the City of Westminster, close to the historic Westminster Abbey and the government buildings of Whitehall and Downing Street. The name may refer to either of two structures: the Old Palace, a medieval building complex most of which was destroyed in 1834, and its replacement New Palace that stands today; it has retained its original style and status as a royal residence for ceremonial purposes.

The first royal palace was built on the site in the eleventh century, and Westminster was the primary London residence of the Kings of England until a fire destroyed much of the complex in 1512. After that, it served as the home of Parliament, which had been meeting there since the thirteenth century, and the seat of the Royal Courts of Justice, based in and around Westminster Hall. In 1834, an even greater fire ravaged the heavily rebuilt Houses of Parliament, and the only structures of significance to survive were Westminster Hall, the Cloisters of St Stephen's, the Chapel of St Mary Undercroft and the Jewel Tower.

The subsequent competition for the reconstruction of the Palace was won by architect Charles Barry and his design for a building in the Perpendicular Gothic style. The remains of the Old Palace (with the exception of the detached Jewel Tower) were incorporated in its much larger replacement, which contains over 1,100 rooms organised symmetrically around two series of courtyards. Part of the New Palace's area of 3.24 hectares (8 acres) was reclaimed from the Thames, which is the setting of its principal facade, the 266-metre (873 ft) river front. Barry was assisted by Augustus W. N. Pugin, a leading authority on Gothic architecture and style, who provided designs for the decoration and furnishings of the Palace. Construction started in 1840 and lasted for thirty years, suffering great delays and cost overruns, as well as the death of both leading architects; works for the interior decoration continued intermittently well into the twentieth century. Major conservation work has been carried out since, due to the effects of London's air pollution, and extensive repairs took place after the Second World War, including the reconstruction of the Commons Chamber following its bombing in 1941.

The Palace is one of the centres of political life in the United Kingdom; "Westminster" has become a metonym for the UK Parliament, and the Westminster system of government has taken its name after it. Its Clock Tower, in particular, which has become known as "Big Ben" after its main bell, is an iconic landmark of London and the United Kingdom in general, one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city and an emblem of parliamentary democracy. The Palace of Westminster has been a Grade I listed building since 1970 and part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987.

1:52 Year of the Tiger

1:52 Year of the Tiger

To be honest 2010 is something I've been looking forward to for almost a year now. Personally 2009 was a painful year, I've never believed in bad luck but when it comes to 2009 it was full of it especially when it comes to personal matters. I have a good feeling about 2010 though, after all it is the year of the Tiger so hopefully whoever is up there that's in charge of luck gives me a break this year.

Before I forget this shot has a neat little story behind it heh. I first spotted this area driving home once coming off the freeway when I saw this big field of trees decorated with Christmas lights it truly does look magical at night and I really wanted to capture that for my first shot of Project 52. I returned a couple weeks later hoping to take the shot, it was a moonless night and temperatures were in the ballpark of -15C to -20C with heavy winds making it feel even colder outside. I had all my gear ready and all my batteries charged but upon getting there I noticed my camera wasn't turning on, right away I knew the problem was the batteries so I tried to give them some body heat to get a couple exposures out of them but no luck. I look into my bag and realize I had my double A adapter for my grip so I load her up with double A's and insert the magazine into the grip ALAS I had 2 bars! maybe I can get this shot after all! I grabbed my tripod and ran across the street, set up the camera put it on timer and ran to my position....I was out of focus so I was running back and forth trying to get this shot to work but no luck, by now I am at first stage of hypothermia so I said 'EFF THIS' and ran back to the car even ditching my tripod behind...let me tell you, I'm a grown man and I can't tell you how much pain my hands and feet were in it. As soon as I began getting some blood flow back it felt as though I had poison running through my veins. I've never felt such pain before. Drove back home that night and sat next to the heater till I thawed out.

This takes us to attempt number 2 which happened today but thankfully I had Christian to take the shot for me also temperatures were only about -5C which is a relief as sad as that sounds.

Thanks to Christian for helping me capture this, without you I'd be a frozen corpse surrounded by a field of decorated trees. Thanks bud. This is our year man we HAVE to finish this one.

To all my friends and family I wish you all a happy new year and remember stay warm and wear gloves.
