Re: Guess where I've just been

Where does it go to and from? And why? Impressive views, though!

Re: Guess where I've just been

North Greenwich (o2 dome) to Royal Victoria Dock (ExCeL centre). Why? Because Boris wanted a vanity project - an alternative to a foot brige first proposed in 2007 between North Greenwich and Canary Wharf...

It is meant to serve some purpose during the Olympics to join up two venues. Otherwise its just a tourist trap. My cinicism is slightly justified. The price tag, Emirats sponsorship of 34m and them staining my Tube Map for eternity with their name on the landing sites forever more even after the 10 year deal ends. But its another story

Well they all lean to the right so they could do with a straighten.The colours look a bit funny in the past few,white balance?

I'll probably bite the price bullet in the next couple of weeks and have a ride.

Re: Guess where I've just been

Thanks Andy. I was playing with the colours a bit so will have another look they look completely different on my phone (now) opposed to on the computer. I keep trying to get over the grey washed out look I seem to get. Perhaps I need to set the camera to vivid rather than natural.

Regarding lean, I hadn't noticed but can really see it now!

Re: Guess where I've just been

Thanks Chevvy. I'm happyish with Boris at the moment. Better than Ken even if he isn't the best I think some colleagues and myself are going for drinks near the O2 next week and for a ride. Chance to put advice into action. It's a pity the windows are so dirty already

You would think they could have used Pilkington K glass which is self cleaning

Boris is Better than Red Ken for London to Thrive and not just survive says a born Londoner ... emigrated to Hampshire
