Boats and the Thames Barrier

This is a photograph of some boats on the River Thames with the Thames Barrier in the distance, taken on a lunchtime walk from North Greenwich – it was high tide (or close to it), lifting the boats nicely – so much more attractive than having them stuck in the mud!  The tidal range in…

Bar Italia

Met up with my friend Ola last night on the way home and stopped off for a coffee at Bar Italia (22 Firth Street) in Soho before walking on, cameras in hand, down to the Mall, Green Park and Hyde Park back to Paddington Station I took several pictures while we drank our coffee –…

London Skyline

A long exposure photograph taken from the Thames shoreline at low tide on a lunchtime trip to Bermondsey with the aim to get a picture like this.  Some familiar elements on the skyline – from left to right – The Shard, Tower Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral, The Walkie-Talkie (20 Fenchurch Street),  Tower 42 (though I am…

Thames Barrier

  A long exposure photograph of the Thames towards the Thames Barrier (visible just below the horizon) – Woolwich in the distance on the far side of the river, and Charlton on this side – taken on a lunchtime walk last Friday, starting from Greenwich North and joining the Thames Path on the east side…

River Thames from East India Dock

  This photograph was taken was taken from the Thames Path at East India Dock Basin – the dock is now a nature reserve, though the lock gates were renovated and are still in place maintaining the water level in the reserve.  This picture of the River Thames looking downstream – the Millennium Dome/O2 Arena…

Looking back at Canary Wharf

  This picture was taken on another lunchtime excursion – this time to North Greenwich (one stop on the Jubilee line) and, with the Millenium Dome behind me, looking back at Canary Wharf (and yet another Thames Clipper…they get everywhere!)…I love this shot, but it could be better – because it was taken resting on…

North Greenwich View

  This photograph was taken one lunch time a week or so back, looking across the Thames from the Isle of Dogs towards the Millenium Dome/O2 Arena at North Greenwich – it’s a short way from the office at Canary Wharf – I have been running down the Thames Path here for a few weeks…

River Windrush…slowed down…

This is a photograph of the the River Windrush taken at Minster Lovell in Oxfordshire – a mostly bright day, with clouds for extra interest! While not a waterfall (I don’t know of any nearby), the river is quite turbulent, so lends itself to a long exposure as I did here – I took several…

Old Oak Tree

This photograph was taken on the gloriously sunny afternoon of the 1st of March – the first day of Spring!  Unfortunately, the weather didn’t last and the 2nd day of Spring has been wet, windy and miserable…oh well! Still, a short walk in the sun shine resulted in some good images – the one shown…

Metal and Wood

Hmmm…not doing so well with the New Years Resolution (which was to post photographs to this website more regularly)…so, without further ado, here is one of my latest! Taken a few days ago, it is part of a short study of a strange looking piece of artwork that has been installed at Canary Wharf –…
