London is a very beautiful city, full of visual surprises.
I was cycling home from work, along the path beside the Gran Union Canal, when I saw this amazingly colourful scene.
I took this photo by leaning out of the window of the Royal College of Music with my pocket camera.
On the first Sunday of every month there is something called “Feast”, which happens in West Norwood, near to where I live. There are food stalls and booze and wonderful coffee for sale and things for kids to do and crafts stalls and some live witch-burning.
This morning it rained heavily on “Feast”, like it has done every day this summer.
That’s the unfinished “Shard” building in the centre of the photo.
Months later now, they’ve finished it. I’m a bit disappointed they didn’t go all the way up to a sharp point. They left it somewhat ragged-looking.
Waterloo Bridge, a red bus, two red cranes and a one of those odd curvy coloured things in the sky.
People sheltering from rain on the South Bank, beneath Hungerford Bridge.
The River Thames and the black hull of the HMS President moored at Victoria Embankment. The spire of Temple Church is behind.
Lego men working on “The Shard”, London Bridge, London.
A view across the Thames to the big green boat, the “Tamesis”. It’s a Dutch barge built in the 1930s, now serving as a restaurant.
This huge building in Chelsea used to provide power for the London Underground system but now its days are numbered and it will soon be demolished.
