Razzle Dazzle… more from London

Once again I was up working on London’s Southbank a couple of days this week. Very hot and sticky, so at lunchtime I crept out for a bit of fresh air and sun, with Camera in hand,.. first thing I noticed was this….

At first I didnt know what that referred to.. I looked around the Southbank walkway.. nothing.. then I saw this.. the penny dropped… awesome paintwork…

I turned to look at Southbank a little downstream from where I was toward the Oxo Tower.. there are loads of cafes and little shops along the river walkway…

Here’s a bit more detail fo the OXO Tower… world famous restaurant at the top.. you can just see the tables.. I’d recommend a visit if you’re in town…

I turned my attention to one of my favourite views… the walkie talkie tower looked good in the bright noon sunshine..

 

The Walkie Talkie - (in) famous for melting paint and rubber on cars that it reflects the sun onto.. I think they have put some screens up now..

You can just see one of the platforms built out onto Blackriars Bridge at the Bottom.
