London’s Southbank on a hazy, early summer morning.

The Southbank in London is a real tourist magnet. I was a bit early taking this shot and caught a quiet spell.. Southank hosts the British Film Institute, The National Theatre and The Hayward Gallery, as well as a LOT of resteraunt’s and of course a little further round the river the London Eye. Loads to see and do.

This is the view looking West (ish) towards Waterloo Bridge, I occasionally work in our office on the Southbank and always take the opportunity to have a look at the river and the skyline.. The picture below shows a very hazy early (9am ish) view toward the City Of London.

ImageIn the foreground is Blackfriars bridge, with the new station built out over the River Thames.. the roof segments look like clam or oyster shells.

Because of the time of day, Waterloo bridge was gridlocked with traffic….

ImageYou might notice some people on the ‘beach’ at the bottom of the picture.. that was a film crew – absolutley no idea why… I can think of better things to do on a lovely day than trudge through the mud.

Finally, this caught my eye – The Royal National Lifeboat Institute River Thames Station below Waterloo Bridge – easy to overlook as its tucked away on the river bank. Essential with all the river traffic.

ImageHope you enjoyed.. thanks for reading.

  1. Isn’t that where all the spies meet in the films?
