The London Eye! You know it, of course. It was constructed for the Millennium and was completed in March of 2000. In 1993, there was a competition to design a landmark for the millennium. The architects, husband and wife David Marks and Julia Barfield, submitted the design for the London Eye but it was rejected by the judges. They built it anyway!
I took the photo of Richard from the other side of the Thames, showing how it looks at night all lit up. The year that we were there, it changed to different colors. (The colors can be used to show support, just two nights ago it was lit up yellow and blue, the colors of the flag of Ukraine.) I think that's wonderful. From the other two photos here, I think you can see how it looks very different from other observation wheels you might have seen....
You can see that it is cantilevered or supported on only one side.
If you call it a Ferris Wheel, it won't bother me any! We use words that are familiar to us. Just across from the London Eye is, I believe, one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen...The Houses of Parliament which includes The Elizabeth Tower, which was recently restored. Once again, The Elizabeth Tower has been called "Big Ben" for many years and we all know that technically, that is the name of the bell inside the tower itself, but if you wish to still say "Big Ben", I will NOT send the language police to your door! Whatever you call it, it is truly lovely.
