One more from the Thames barrier

Slowly, things are opening up again around here.

Making the most of a cloudy day I relied on the architecture to shine!

Once a barrier...


A pile of neglected and weathered garden fences made of reed ready for the garbage truck. Even the threads to bind them together are a bit loose.

From a distance these lines could also look like a rock with layers of limestone or waves of stone... :-)


Post sunset colours at the Thames Barrier on the River Thames in London. It was quite windy (although not as much as last weekend!) so I shielded my camera with my body to capture this long exposure.


This view has changed a lot in recent years, with all the new additional skyscrapers in the Canary Wharf area. It's a shame that one of the new buildings blocks the O2 Arena in this, but I guess that's just part of the interesting changing skyline of London.


Thanks for viewing :-)

Oh si je pouvais.. Encore un soir... Un peu de nous.. Mais j'entrouvre la barrière.. Voilà c'est fini...

Oh if I could... An evening again.. A few of us... But I open the barrier... It's the end...

No, we couldn't bring the columns down, no we couldn't destroy a single one.



N°89 Barrier


One of the sections of The Thames Barrier raised out of the river.

A much photographed structure, but here is my two penn'orth.

Any photographers out there planning on visiting London a very interesting spot to shoot is the Thames Barrier in Woolwich in southeast London. It's only 5 or 6 stops out of London Bridge and throws up some good photo opportunities which include the barrier structures themselves but also some unique views of the Canary Wharf estate with its high rise skyline.


This image is one that I took for its LACK of symmetry. The usual image of the barriers is a composition that takes in the front of the structures leading away from the camera across the river, giving a large-to-small leading line and a very pleasing shot. (Don't worry, I shot lots of those as well as this.) Still I kind of like this shot for it's quirky, muddled outlook and the contrast between the shiny barrier structures and the grainy, gritty buildings on the far bank.
