The Royal Courts of Justice, commonly called the Law Courts, is the building in London which houses the Court of Appeal of England and Wales and the High Court of Justice of England and Wales. Courts within the building are open to the public although there may be some restrictions depending upon the nature of the cases being heard. The building is a large grey stone edifice in the Victorian Gothic style and was designed by George Edmund Street, a solicitor turned architect. It was built in the 1870s. The Royal Courts of Justice were opened by Queen Victoria in December 1882. It is on The Strand, in the City of Westminster, near the border with the City of London (Temple Bar) and the London Borough of Camden. It is surrounded by the four Inns of Court and London School of Economics. The nearest tube stations are Chancery Lane and Temple. (from Wiki)

Good use of linear perspective with the street at right to add lead in lines. Excellent sharpness & the people in the sidewalk add scale. I like the punchy light contrasts & the clear blue sky. Have a great weekend!

A great perspective on this well known façade, that is often seen on UK television news. A well presented image with excellent colours and sharpness.

J'ai déjà posté une photo de cet endroit. Je trouvais l'architecture très belle et très soignée comme ton image, très nette et avec un beau cadrage.
