Whilst on a rare shopping trip out today I was rather impressed by the many displays paying tribute to the forth-coming Olympic Games.

Up until today the reality of living in the 2012 host city had rather passed me by.

However I do have to admit to being rather caught up in a sense of pride and excitement.

I am drawn to  rather retro images of London, and in particular those that represent such iconic symbols as black taxis, red buses, and Big Ben.

Below are images from the range that Marks and Spencer bought out to celebrate the  Golden Jubilee:
