lovelondonscenes 132 – A short Thames walk, from Hammersmith to Kew

Yesterday, Jon, Maggie, Kath and I did a completist walk, filling in a gap in what we’ve walked together, though the route was very familiar to me, at least, having cycled it a zillion times. Starting at Hammersmith Bridge and ending at Kew Bridge, where we ended with a pleasant lunch at the newish Fullers Pub, One Over the Ait.

The tide was low and it made for a sense of space and tranquility. Just a few rowers putting in a shift.

At Hammersmith Bridge.

Along Chiswick Mall.

At Barnes Bridge.

The old Mortlake brewery, with the modern Budweiser set up behind it.

Approaching Kew Bridge, looking over to Strand-on-the-Green.

    Pretty pics on a dull day. Especially like the ground-level view of Hammersmith Bridge, making it look like some distant steampunk jungle rather than the bit by the roundabout and the flyover. Who says the camera never lies?
