London. This and another

After many wasted weekends it was time to go for a walk today. Without clear intentions and destinations, it produced 20 pictures which I would like to share with everyone. Locations include Knightsbridge, Greenwich and Isle of Dogs (Canary Wharf)

Some very interesting views of London in that lot. I love the curvy glass building in the first few shots - I've never seen it before I'm ashamed to say.

Anyway, thanks for sharing.

Thank you

@Svartmetall
The sexy-looking glass building is a rather new addition to the area developing around Victoria Station. It was completed a couple of years ago. Indeed one of my favourite modern constructions in London as is the area around the Victoria station.

@Tetramesh

Thanks! I had never been to that area before and to my great surprise the Thames Path (i.e. the pedestrian riverside walk) found its way to some of the least attractive (not to us, of course ) industrial sights of London. It's got a nice charm, especially since for ~1 hour of walking and taking pictures we (there were 2 of us, me and a friend of mine) didn't meet a single person. It felt strange

Awesome lighting, nice use of that Porsche in those two shots as well. All of these are excellent, far more than just the usual snapshots I think.

Yep, good pics from a good photographer. I agree with tetramesh, that pic is great. I wonder how much it differs from the original. Much touching up pansori?

That is quite an overstatement, to say the least

Its my opinion...I express it freely, I come from an area in London, which motivates me to say this, and I don’t expect to be judged by people I really don’t know.

Hey I didn't mean to sound offensive or anything.
In fact, to some extent I would even agree. London is a unique city (in a sense a British equivalent of NYC and Chicago perhaps) where people from all around the world have gathered to make it what is is today.

It's quite interesting though, that a while ago (about 5 years i.e. when I first arrived) my perception of London was so different from what it is at the present. I indeed took it as the greatest city on earth. However this has changed proportionally to my travel experiences to other great cities which made me rethink of whether London, after all, is so great as it seemed in the beginning.

London is a very special and great city nonetheless!
