Tate Modern is an old power station that is now being used as an art gallery. It sits on the South bank of the Thames, opposite St Paul’s Cathedral and was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. The original name for it was Bankside Power Station, and you can still see the word Bankside written in place on the wall of the Thames today.
Walking around London you will see a lot of Scott’s work, and indeed every time you pass a red telephone box you have him to thank for the design.
This was one of about 3 images I took on an evening photocrawl a few weeks ago. I was very uninspired that night.
