A Walk Along The Thames

Destination Olympus - A walk along the Thames embankemnt on the way to the PEN-F launch.



You all know this one... The Shard. London's latest iconic building at London Bridge station.

I tried a few from the bridge itself but the flat lighting and the wind conspired against me and produced some very uninteresting shots. The steps down to the embankment were shut so I had to go the long way and take a cut through (to city hall)...




...to get to the river.



Cropped to a panorama rather than a couple of shots stiched together. Just to see how it looked.

Now...



... beware the selfie stick.

Looking back...



and forward...



Now a stroll along Thames Shad...



at the end of which was my destination...



...The Design Centre, where the PEN-F was being launched.

Interesting stroll in drab circumstances, you still got some intriguing images, "beware the selfie stick" being my choice for the amount of detail.

Re: A Walk Along The Thames

An interesting series of posts - just a pity you were not there today when the rain took just the one day off and the colours would have been enhanced. Mind you it just about sums up our weather for the past few weeks, although here in the south east we have not suffered the devastation of other parts of the UK.

Regards,
Ann1e

Re: A Walk Along The Thames

Thanks for the guided tour of London, OM - it takes me back to 1990, but Oh how much it has changed since then!

Re: A Walk Along The Thames

Looks like you took a similar route to me except that I started at Westminster Bridge. Pretty drizzly for me but I got some half decent images which I will try and post tomorrow evening. Better ones were taken on the walk back to Westminster when it was dark.

Thanks Imageryone, I'm glad you agreed with me on this. I had a shot of just the "Belfast" with some tourists but this one showed so much more of the busy London behind that I had to include it in my choices.

British weather is a thing on its own and I often disagree with people who want to get their cameras with ISO 25 settings. We so rarely see the sun that I want a camera with base ISO of 800 and upwards. I'm glad you found a rain free spot. Thanks.

Thanks Mark. Even I was confused coming out of the station and missed the exit that takes you straight out onto the bridge. I also got a practise fire alarm - something I've never come across before at a station although I suppose they must have them.

I liked your evening shots. I had to get back so could not hang around. Thanks.
