life through my lens

my passion is travel; my enjoyment photography

along the Thames

One of my favourite things to do in life is to walk; along the beach, across hills, along lanes, exploring cities and towns and in particular….along the Thames. A tidal and working river, the Thames is constantly in motion and change. No matter which day, you will always see something different. This particular stretch is between Thames Ditton and Kingston. I took a walk last week Tuesday from TD to K and back again during my break. A beautiful day with the crisp feel of spring in the air.

memories of Richmond

One of my favourite things to do when still living in Richmond was to walk down to the riverside to see the Thames. Every day was different, every hour was different. This was taken at the bottom of the steps leading down from Twickenham Bridge. I loved the reflections on the water and never got tired of this view.

Fly the #London Eye

The London Eye at 135 metres, is the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel, with 40 kilometre panoramic views on a clear day.   It is also one of my favourite places to visit when I go walk-about through London.

It is especially fabulous and takes on a whole new life on New Year’s Eve; a sight not to be missed when you can get to see the most spectacular display of fireworks imaginable.  The crowds are enormous; it’s freezing cold; you stand for ages……and yet it is worthwhile when you hear the gongs of Big Ben strike 12midnight! An experience like no other 🙂

London is an amazing beautiful city, ever changing yet constantly the same, with many moods.  No matter the weather, wherever you are in London there is something beautiful to see.  This photo was taken on 18.03.2010 at about 6pm from the Embankment
