Bankside

I first noticed this text written in this wall a few years ago while I was on a boat on the Thames river. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t seen it before, having been in the area hundreds of times over the past decade – but I guess that’s one of the great things about London and the fact you can always notice new things.

I was on a photocrawl a couple of weeks ago when I finally got around to taking a few photos of it. It was a wet and snowy day, and I had been walking around for a little while before finally getting to this spot – and it’s here where I decided to finally get the camera out of the bag and start shooting, which I’m glad I did as I had a pretty creative shooting session after taking this image, and it would have been easy on such a day to simply not take my camera out of the bag at all.

This is an automated post, as I am currently in Beijing; therefore my responses will be slow – if at all.

  1. Sometimes, I find that I have to take a pic or two before the creative juices kick in – good form! Really like the combination of the moldy/cruddy lettering with the ominous sky! Like it a lot! Good stuff Murph!

  2. Digging the moody feel to this. The lines lead you all the way across the shot. Nice find.
