Docklands


This is a river view of the Docklands, once part of the Port of London, now redeveloped principally for commercial and residential use. I snapped this picture while travelling to Greenwich on a river boat.

The tall building with the pointy roof is Canary Wharf, which I've previously shown you here. You can see a different view of the Docklands here.

This time we trampled on foot half of of the Isle of Dogs. Nice to see the perspective from a boat. By the way, many more boats on the Thames now, what happened?

I know, the Thames is much busier these days. There are lots more tourist cruises (most of them linked to the hop-on, hop-off bus tours) as well as regular commuter services by Thames Clippers and others. I'd only been on a boat once in the last ten years, then this year alone I've been 3 times!

You got even the DuckTours with the amphibious bus: they are funny, but I don't think I ever take one of that!

They're not as bad as they look! I took one once and although I was dreading it, in the end it was fine. Very uneventful on entering and exiting the Thames, which was the main thing :-)

Unusual but very effective shot!
