Time for an update, methinks...

























[I didn't mention before that I have a bit of a thing for London buses too, did I?...]

How grim. I like the last one. The brickwork is excellent.

Went along to Trafalgar Square today to help make up the numbers in the mass gathering in protest against (mostly) Section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000 and police use of it to harrass photographers

Full gallery here and a few favs


Mass Photo Op




I'm pretty sure this was Simona Bonomo - the Italian student who was arrested at Paddington Basin back in October - being chased round the crowd by a PCSO intent on serving her with a Fixed Penalty Notice for something. At first I thought it was an agit-prop action, but the PCSO and his buddies were genuine.

The crowd, and then a regular police constable, talked him out of it.




'Freedom Warden'




I'm a dog not a terrorist




A bit of chat

Queen Victoria Street, EC4

Semi-touristy image of St Paul's Cathedral - the spire is the tower of the church of St Augustine with St Faith, which is all that remains of the church after wartime damage in 1941. Today it forms part of the building of St Paul's Cathedral school.

Another semi-touristy image - hope you recognise the location

Doorway, Shad Thames





Warehouse Bridges, Shad Thames





The Passmore Edwards Library, Whitechapel High Street, London E1

designed 1892 by Potts, Sulman and Hennings. Also an entrance to Aldgate East Underground Station. The remainder of the building is now part of the Whitechapel Gallery next door.

The poet and painter Isaac Rosenberg lived here, according to the English Heritage blue plaque.





Whitechapel Bell Foundry, Whitechapel Road E1

Britain's oldest manufacturing business - founded 1570 and still making bells on the same site.

Doing a little experimentation today - a Cokin P002 orange filter on my digital SLR. White balance set to daylight and on-camera previews to monochrome.

Unfortunately, the clear sky I'd hoped in the morning for had hazed over by lunch time, so the objective of darkening blue skies without Photoshop was missed somewhat.

Still...

The Navigators, Hays Galleria




Emblem House; part of The London Bridge Hospital. The building dates to 1900 and was formerly a shipping office.




Horsleydown Square by Wickham & Associates, 1983-1990. I've always rather enjoyed this development on Shad Thames and the Dutch-influenced feel it has. Suddenly this made a lot more sense when I discovered the other day that Julyan Wickham married the daughter of the Dutch modernist architect, Aldo van Eyck (whose work I love).

Four from the environs of Bermondsey Street SE1, about two minutes walk from Renzo Piano's Shard and Norman Foster's More London buildings, but a completely different world.

Record photography rather than anything particularly artful, but hey.

A couple of late 17th century houses on Bermondsey Street.





19th century on Crucifix Lane round the corner.




Bermondsey Street as it goes under the London Bridge railway viaduct.

Thanks Porto











The last two were a bit of a technical challenge as I decided to try to catch a little of the twilight after work and then discovered I'd left the plate for my tripod at home. Cue improv with my monopod and holding 8 second exposures as still as I could while bracing it against anything I could find. It took a few attempts...

Going a little further afield than normal... Croydon - a south London suburb in Surrey

NLA Tower by Richard Seifert, completed in 1970




Lunar House, Park Lane

The 1960s architecture of central Croydon always remind me of Marineville in Gerry Anderson's Stingray.

I imagine that, should Croydon ever be attacked by a 300ft giant squid swimming up the river Wandle, the buildings along Park Lane would descend briskly into the ground to be protected by huge steel shutters.




Derelict shop, Station Road




North End




West Croydon Bus Station
