From Woolwich I headed back towards central London and had a quick look at the Thames Barrier…the tide was out and the fog was down…I have pictures
Moving on to Woolwich Arsenal…I’d seen that there was some interesting statues and an interesting foot tunnel to have a look at…plus I fancied seeing the Thames Barrier.
A last minute decision to troop into London on Saturday wasn’t quite as successful as I’d hoped due to a heavy fog that took forever to lift…and then still lingered as quite a heavy haze.
The end is nigh…AKA the stragglers. Having spent since 6pm the night before out and about I started to run out of steam…but not before a quick visit to Southwark, Southbank and The Tate Modern to round off quite a photographic experience
Moving into the early morning of my overnight photography adventure through London I lost all my companions…no staying power. So I caught the first DLR from Bank and took a quick dash across to Canary Wharf where I collected the following images:
We had a good walk around London during the early hours taking in Brick Lane and much of the City before heading back to Tower Bridge.
The longest day, or as photographers like to think, the shortest night, was on or around the 20th and 21st of June this year. There’s quite a gathering of photographers to be found roaming the streets of London on this night doing the sunset to sunrise over nighter and I joined the throngs this year.
One last one from last Sundays London Photowalk. This one is off a derelict tyre fitters a number of us visited. The police turned up fairly quickly and stopped the photographic fun, but not before I had taken this shot.
On the recent London Photowalk we visited the Shad Thames area which is instantly recognisable, even now, as the warehouse area featured in The Doctor Who series Resurrection of the Daleks in 1984.
If you venture off the main cobbled street you’ll find squares formed by the restored warehousing and flats. In one of these squares we came across an interesting fountain which had “sculptures” of various items set around it including this Nikon camera. It was with some amusement we heard a Canon user muttering that “…it should have been a Canon”.
