London, London Blackfriars, the Shard, Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge
Looking out East across London from Blackfriars station. #MySundayPhoto

This image was taken from London Blackfriars Station when I was returning from a meeting with a rather significant politician the other day. The trains were running a bit late and as I waited I spotted this view and thought it was too good a sight not to snap.

For those that aren’t too familiar with London, that’s the Shard on the right and 20 Fenchurch Street, known as the Walkie Talkie on the left. Just to the right of centre you can make out Tower Bridge and to the left of that are the office buildings of Canary Wharf. I would go on, but this will get very boring!

I like the way the River Thames leads the eye. It was a very overcast day and this was shot through a glass window, hence why it looks quite grey. I used a dusk filter and this actually added a bit of colour to the picture, which was not the effect I was expecting. I know you love it when I give you the detail and I’m not going to disappoint. The ISO was set at 800, aperture was set a f22 and focal length 28mm.

I’ve spent a large part of my adult life living in and around London. For all its many faults, an image like this where you an pick out so many great buildings is a reminder that it is a fantastic city. I occasionally need reminding of this!

  1. I love the Walkie Talkie – such a distinctive building! We’ve just been up on the Eye yesterday (Saturday), so our kids have just had their first view of London’s iconic buildings from up high.

    (Enjoyed your Clegg post, by the way!)

  2. Lovely photo, of a typical London cityline. I do love London, although only to visit. I’m not sure I could work there more than the occasional meeting/conference

  3. You got a great vantage point; perfect view down river. What I love about this photo is the moodiness of the sky and the river Thames, which reflect and mirror each other, and the symmetry from both sides of the river. Good shot
