Walk along the Regents canal.

My daughter was coming home from Uni today for a few days so I went to meet her at Paddington.I had about 3 hours to kill so started at Camden lock and after a curry at the market I walked along the Regents canal.

Just down from Camden towards Regents park.


Toward Lisson Grove.


Looking back to Lisson Grove tunnel.


At Little Venice


Under the Westway,Pink Floyd album cover?


Paddington basin.


I've ment to do this walk for a long time.Lots to see.

E3,12-60.

I really like the 1st shot, the reflection of the bridge in the water is superb

Re: Walk along the Regents canal.

Great pictures. I've meant to do this walk for a long time, too, but it looks as though time is running out. Apart from my aged knees giving me 'gyp', we hope to move soon and instead of only being about 8 miles from the canal we will be about 120 miles away. Why oh why do we leave things until it's too late?

Re: Walk along the Regents canal.

Nice shots, but the first one stands out, with rthe composition, colours and reflection. I also like number 3, but the building on the right caught my eye and jarred. I'm not sure it's possible to crop it out effectively, though.

It's amazing how many people live around there and take it for granted or, worse, never bother to look.

David.

Re: Walk along the Regents canal.

I've done one of the organised walks around there, which mostly consisted of telling us which house was occupied by a celeb. Was a good way of getting to know the area but worth going back to take pics.

As for cropping the building - I remember that bridge, if you move far enough to exclude the building or to give enough room to crop the you lose the shape of the view. One of those where you can't win.
