London Photographs from Borough Market, Millenium Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral
Borough Market is such a buzzing place, I love it. The street food stalls are amazing and the atmosphere makes you want to sit and soak it all up. I love looking at the different produce for sale and for a photographer its a dream!
There is so much to look at. I love the atmosphere here and the food is amazing!
VIEWS FROM MILLENIUM BRIDGE
Millenium bridge takes you over to the Tate Modern Art gallery which I love to visit. This building was once a power station and my Dad worked in it many moons ago! From the bridge looking back you get a great view of St Paul’s in the distance and looking up stream you see Tower Bridge and the Shard. The London skyline is always changing and the picture below shows what London is full of – cranes and building work. It never stops but sadly many of the old building’s seem to be getting swallowed up in the mass of glass and metal. Old London is what has the atmosphere and the history that you cannot replace.
WALK ACROSS LONDON BRIDGE
MIXING THE OLD WITH THE NEW
The Monument here shows the start of the Great Fire of London and is near Pudding Lane where it started in a bakers shop. It has 311 steps which I have now been up and down three times when my girls were all learning about the Great Fire at school! To the left of the Monument you see the Walkie Talkie building. Will it still be here as long as the Monument?
ST PAULS AND ARMISTICE DAY
It happened to be Armistice Day when I went on my London photo walk and there was a service going on in St Paul’s Cathedral. Outside the crowd that had gathered stood still in silence and even the traffic stopped at the 11th hour.
