lovelondonscenes 145 – Fish eye fun from Southwark Bridge to Vauxhall

Yesterday I went for a stroll along the Thames, partly to clear out the cobwebs after an awesome leaving party (mine!) and to try out a couple of little lenses that you attach to your iPhone camera. A gift from a good friend on Friday. I took the tube to London Bridge, wandered through an unbelievably crowded Borough Market – gave up the idea of getting a Bratwurst and a beer –  and emerged by the river near Southwark Bridge. And started snapping. Here are a few takes.

Railway bridge between London and Southwark bridges. Must have a name, but I don’t know it.

Millenium Bridge

Riverboat pier.

St Paul’s and Millenium Bridge.

Blackfriars Bridge, with the City skyscape lurking.

Wide angle version.

Westminster perspectives from Albert Embankment.

Used to work over there!

Tamesis Dock – pub/club on a boat, Albert Embankment. Have had some good times there!

And had a really good time here on Friday night – my leaving party. The Rose pub, Albert Embankment.

Vauxhall bus and tube station, just off the bridge.

  1. Nice gift!
    I’m curious though about many of the the images – did they get cropped as you shot them or did you do that later?

    Cannon Street Bridge.
    Not sure about that lens!
