Wikipedia picture of the day

Yes, I’ve been on a bit of a photo-of-the-day kick lately.  It’s just a phase, I’m sure.  As I have more time to catch up on news, I’ll be posting fewer images.  This latest image posting is the Wikipedia picture of the day for August 3, 2006.


Seen here from the rear at twilight, the London Eye, also known as the Millennium Wheel, is the largest observation wheel in the world at 135 m (443 ft) high. The wheel carries 32 sealed passenger capsules and rotates at a rate of 0.26 m/s (about 0.9 km/h or 0.6 mph) so that one revolution takes about 30 minutes to complete.
