London Docklands II - Reduxby georgewjohnson

Photography / Urban & Rural / Cityscapes & Skylines©2010-2015 georgewjohnson
Docklands, East London, United Kingdom. Taken June 2010

I really like this version, remnds me of a 1930s NY skyline shot.

I remember heading down into London just after a party at friend's house. I drove down to the other side of Docklands trying to get a sunset shot, missed it by about 20 mins after I got stuck in a 2 mile one way system! LOL! Headed around to the other side of the Docklands, the Blackwall side, creeping around in the shadows around "chucking out" time ( the time when the pubs close and everyone has to go home ) just waiting for someone to call the coppers and having to explain what I was up to! It was such a calm, walm Summer night. The one smell I love is a city centre on warm Summer night, something quite beautiful about the aroma of heat escaping the city as it starts to settle down for the night...

This is a genuine reflection, the water really was that still and perfect, basically because there are buildings all around and it takes a quite a breeze to shake the surface.

I was so proud that this got a DD, it was only a mess about edit for one of my shots. The DD was gained on date 10-10-(20)10, which makes it even more special to me!

Thank you very much indeed! One of the few places in a "flat" city like London that you get to shoot tall buildings and reflections.

interesting...i've not been there in 20 years.
The films "Naked" and "Eastern Promises" both offer interesting photographic takes on modern london.

Yep it's 100% genuine and it's one of my favourite places to shoot in London as hardly anyone knows about it.

Very cool. London has so much character.
My wife and I went there for vacation....a long time ago.
It's such a beautiful place.
One of my favorite places was Leeds Castle.

Thank you very much. There are some superb little places around there. I also like the view from the other side in Rotherhithe, the flats next to Rotherhithe Street.

Thank you very much. It was the middle of June and one of my favourite months as the weather is so good for outdoor photography. The basin is surrounded by houses, apartment buildings and offices, so the wind really has to get up to affect the water.
