Towering in all its marble glory the traditional Hindu temple sits among red brick houses in the borough of Neasden (northwest London).
The story behind the building the temple is equally amazing, 5,000 tons of Italian marble and Bulgarian limestone were shipped to India where they were hand carved by skilled artisans and then like giant blocks of lego it was shipped to London where hundreds of volunteers assembled it piece by piece. The official opening was in 1995.

These leaping fish border Regents Canal at the steps that lead up to St Martins University of the arts. A bit bigger than what I suspect you'll actually find in the canal.
This is today's water pic. Have you entered yours into the competition?

Don't forget to check out the water competition here.

A different take on water today. The spout of an old drinking fountain in the City of London. The fountain is thought to date back to the 12th century, however it has been moved a couple of times. The wolf's head is as a tribute to the last wolf killed n London. Appropriate for the financial district perhaps?
Don't forget it you are in the UK to enter the competition to win an iPhone. Details here.
