Anchor point

If you’re visiting London and you find yourself walking down the Thames while the tide is out, feel free to go down on to the banks beside the river. You’ll sometimes get a few funny looks from people, and you may get a bit of river grime on your shoes, but you’re okay to do it along most stretches of the Thames (attempt to do so directly under the London Eye and they start to have issues).

Once down there you can find some great looking things, and lots of crap, but hopefully you may also find something to take a photo of.

In this case, I mostly found crap, but decided to take a few long exposures so I had something coming out of the trip down there.

Tomorrow is World Zombie Day: London where we’ll have a lot of people walking around central London like Zombies…a bit like Monday mornings when everyone has to go back to work. Only many of them will be dressed up.

I plan on walking some of the route to try and ‘shoot’ a couple of them, and I know there are quite a few different groups of people I know who are doing the same. If you’re in town and fancy shuffling along together, let me know.
