My Collection of London Photos

Hi all,

I grew up in London from the age of 2 until I was about 17 years old. I really didn't appreciate the city then.

In the past few years having not been there for getting on for 20 years I've been going back on as regular basis as I can gradually building up a collection of photographs of the city...

I'm gradually uploading extra images at:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/croesyc...7626210978327/

I welcome anyones comments on any of the pictures, and I'm learning all the time.

Thanks for your interest.

Thanks Christos - I do from time to time - usually other people post my pictures on here before I do.

It's odd really - as I grew up the view from my bedroom window was a dull view of houses, and in the foreground the South Circular Road (A205). If we still lived where we did I could see much of the Canary Wharf cluster from the same bedroom window. It's really hard to imagine it even though I know it's the case!

Here's one that I don't think has appeared here yet:

Thanks for reading!

Sometimes the weather in London can be foul and quite non-photogenic. On the other hand sometimes it just seems to work:
