Fantastic photos.

Shad Thames and Southwark often gets overlooked. But it's a jewel for streetscape, flavours, people, passageways and other infrastructural oddities to find. Not only that - but the modern developments which give people a refreshing place to work over the stubborn and dreary city across the river fit perfectly in to the area.

I said it gets overlooked, but your photos capture what i love about it and you've shared it here.

thank you!

Morgans Lane/Tooley Street, SE1

This rather fine brick building is, I believe, part of the London Bridge Hospital. 7 More London by Foster + Partners is near completion behind.

A couple more from further down Tooley Street today


A new entrance gate to Tooley Street installed in 2007. The floral design is derived from the pattern of Blue Delftware pottery produced on the site in the 17th century.





The former Antigallican pub on the corner of Tooley Street and Vine Lane is now part of 'The Terrace', designed by Hawkins\Brown architects.

I can see in this thread more than one picture worth posting in the UPC section. I particularly like those b&w ones.

London is so grand that if one part of it does not appeal to you, pop into another part of London and you might be surprised!

Can not really tell if ongoing constructions are an elemental part of city scenearios thus your lens can not scape from it, or is it just that you're giving special treat to surfaces and other normally unnoticeable architectural elements.

Really mind blowing London set of pictures. A fan!

Probably a combination of the two. I think it's fair to say that in central London you're not usually more than a few hundred metres from a building site, often high quality schemes.

However, as evidenced by my presence on this forum, I do have a more than passing interest in architecture and construction, so I'm looking for things like that. I'm also a fan of Eugene Atget's photography documenting Paris at the 19th century and into the early 20th and that certainly informs some of the pictures I take

Three from Southwark Street, SE1 last week








Three slightly older photos

Three from lunchtime today..

A vent for the Jubilee Line (underground metro) at London Bridge.





Two touristy views from London Bridge:


Looking east toward HMS Belfast and Tower Bridge (Canary Wharf peeking over the top of the Tower Hotel)




Looking west with the dome of St Paul's Cathedral framed by Cannon Street railway station
