Thank you!

I think it's a snack bar. It was right infront of St. Paul's cathedral.

Shapoor, you really do have a talent. The thread's full of amazing pictures.

And on a site note, it's quite funny seeing a Westfield full of British stores. They [Westfield] are an Aussie company, and the cities here are full of malls like the one in Shepherd's Bush. It's just looks weird seeing something so familiar, and then seeing a Boots or a M&S in the background. Anyway, I'm ranting....

Great pictures

The V&A Museum is a great and impressive cultural sight. Thanks for the shots once again!

Many photographers don't bother going to Canary Wharf at night because of the stories they've heard about police officers hassling tripod users but my experience was totally different. Two officers asked me to stop for a few questions and I got into a friendly conversation with them. They let me go after 3 minutes without checking anything, they just asked for my Oyster Card

I love Canary Wharf Station. It's imposing and modern. One of the best of the Tube.

Canary Wharf is such a good complex of buildings. And expanding fast with amazing buildings. I hope the residential highrises and office developments like RS bring more dynamism to CW.

^ Yes I agree. Too bad it would block the view from Stave Hill though, it's got a stunning view of CW.

Well, that's the price we have to pay to have a denser and taller CW.

Kilburn, NW London - One of my least favourite areas in London along Shepherd's Bush and Cricklewood, the not so wealthy areas of London.

Canary Wharf from Thames river at low tide.

I had to check the tide tables to make sure I get there at the right time or I would have been completely wet, it was still very muddy though. There are a few long ladders along the Southern bank for the river to reach down to the riverbank.
