By camera phone - Part III
Denosha asked for a colour shot from the Sony Ericsson K800i, so here it is. This scene shows the same bridge featured 2 days ago. It links Canary Wharf to South Quay. It was taken in the evening to capture the delicate blue sky and the warmth of the urban lighting. The shot is reasonably sharp, even though it was taken handheld while braced against a railing.
My work place is 5 minutes away by foot on the opposite side of the bridge, and I live another 5 minutes away on the side from where this shot was taken. Unfortunately, there's little time (or mood) to appreciate the beauty of the city when rushing on the way to work, or when returning home after a long tiring day.
For those who are wondering, this scene is very atypical of London. The Canary Wharf area was built quite recently - from the early 1990s onwards. Most of London consists of 200 year old town houses, which have been very well preserved. Personally, I enjoy living in both areas. In Canary Wharf you get modern facilities. But in the old parts of London, the city has more of a "soul" with all its quaint little shops and social activities.
