This is Pontoon Dock, a station on London’s Docklands Light Railway. I ventured specifically to this stop to take a shot of the Thames Barrier. The view of the Barrier from this park is an excellent composition without having to pay money to get nearer, but you really need the light to be in the right place. So, moral of this story and for you my photographically inclined friends – check where the light is before heading out ;-)
This is what the light was like in the right direction. Nice clouds too, eh?! Pah!
I did take the opportunity to walk the streets, so straight to the images and starting with some of the views from around the Docklands.
This could be my favourite from the day. The scene reminded me of the Last Supper and I just took the shot, luckily getting 12 people in the frame.
A couple from Old Spitalfields Market.
Emerging from the Ansel Adams exhibition, there was a concert
Have a great weekend all and keep shooting!
And, if you want to go on a photo tour with me around London, let me know.
