The Trellick Tower at night, West London

three views of a nearly-built towerblock on Bishopsgate near Liverpool Street, London

partly-built towerblocks remind me of the new Death Star in Return Of The Jedi

Old Street, Great Eastern Street and Columbia Road, London

I thought I would try and bolster the popularity of this blog by posting a picture of a billboard of Louise Redknapp in Triumph bra and knickers. I chopped the top off again. I'm sure it was visible in the viewfinder so perhaps my camera phone chops off the top off things that are visible in the viewfinder. Or perhaps a bad workman always blames his tools.

A building on Great Eastern Street.

a tower block on Columbia Road

some balconies on Columbia Road. I must try and take more photos of these houses - they are pretty amazing and garish.

a tower block on Old Street

Two adjacent derelict buildings on Great Eastern St. Even the fly posting is derelict - some of them are for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. I'm always surprised that there are still derelict buildings in big cities but particularly so in this part of London.

an office on Great Eastern Street

a disused tube train placed on top of some "vandalism" just off Great Eastern Street.

there are lots of magnificently utilitarian tower blocks in East Berlin that are so ugly they almost manage to be beautiful in the bright sunshine. It's a lot like Elephant & Castle in that respect.

this was in a shop window

these two giant seahorses were in the corner of a bar

Hay's Galleria, more Gherkin, more Thames, and HMS Belfast

two shots of the roof of Hay's Galleria

the HMS Belfast

and two views including the Gherkin in the background

Nine Elms

a very unspectacular view of the spectacular building that is Battersea Power Station

a view from Nine Elms looking east down the Thames with a crazy Mad Max-style boat in the foreground and the MI6 building in the background. This bit of the river is odd with nothing going on except some industrial works.

Telecom Tower from a nearby roof

two different kinds of houses in Notting Hill

I think the above is Stanley Gardens

and here's a tower block I'd never noticed before, right by Notting Hill tube

two churches with the top cut off

St Peter's Church, Kensington Park Road

Nicholas Hawksmoor's Christ Church, Spitalfields. Sorry Nicholas.

two attempts to capture the immensity of Waterloo Station

neither one successful it must be said

what used to be a bingo hall in Kennington, and a fire station and Depositories factory in West Norwood

there's something fascinating about the way old industrial and other buildings are being converted into housing and restaurants in London.

the IMAX cinema, London

taken through the windscreen of my moving car. I would not recommend this approach to photography on any level.
