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.


…this picture from the last London Photowalk came top of the pile. I just found out today and am well chuffed! See the London Photowalk web page here.

You might have seen a slightly different version of this image on this blog a couple of weeks ago – just click here to see it again.


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”.


The HMS Belfast is a fixture of the Thames now. Launched on St Patricks Day (obviously) in 1938 she saw action in the Second World War and the Korean War. She was finally moored on the Thames and turned into a museum in 1971. This photograph shows the detail of the plimsol line.


When walking around the countryside in Essex you periodically see a flash of grey as a squirrel zips up a tree, very rarely do you get an easy picture out of them. Not so this little fella just outside London’s City Hall.

The Shard is the newest addition to the skyline in London and is really beginning to dominate as it nears completion.

This is an HDR photograph taken on the 9th October 2011 from the Millenium Bridge.


Captured on Sunday on the London Photowalk around Hampstead Heath – it’s the shapes created by the stamen(?) that particularly caught my eye.


The occupiers of the barge did seem to be having a great time on the Canal as they rather zig zagged down Regents Canal in London.


Leaving Regents Park you can walk down Regents Canal towards Little Venice. There are some serious mansions down this part of the canal, the juxtaposition of the multi million pound houses and this slightly down at heel barge (more tomorrow) quite struck me.

 


Continuing our look at St John’s Lodge Gardens in Regents Park, London we came across this statue called Shepherdess by C. L. Hartwell RA for Gertrude and Bertie Weaver 1931.
