The Pool of London

Full-width image…

On Sunday evening I travelled to the Pool of London, which is the stretch of the Thames between Tower Bridge and London Bridge. I was lured there (which is tricky, as I work there, and being lured to your workplace on a Sunday is tough) by the promise of some amazing lights at the Switched-On London festival.

I was, to be frank, completely underwhelmed. The website promised so much and yet failed to deliver. I should really have read the small print, which indicates that many of the designs on the website are just concepts.

Still, it wasn’t an entirely wasted trip – I came away with some shots. This is the first, a panoramic shot showing the whole Pool of London. Locals can try and spot the difference in the lighting…
