Day 95: New Southern Belle

New Southern Belle

I’ve seen this boat on my visits to Richmond on Fridays but this is the first time I’ve had a chance to get a half decent shot of it in the last two years.

The boat is called "New Southern Belle"; it is a Mississipi-style stern wheeler bringing a flavour of the old New Orleans to the River Thames.

It is half empty in this shot but it usually full of party revellers at this time. I think it is a pub that docks periodically to pick up more punters but I am not really sure. Richmond Bridge is in the background and there is another pier shortly after the bridge where it picks up more punters as well.

Day 92: Barnes Railway Bridge

Barnes Railway Bridge

I took a walk to Barnes after work yesterday.

It isn’t my favourite part of London to photograph; the Thames here is quite smelly and the many street lights in the area tend to kill my night shots with horrible color casts; that’s why I processed this one differently.

From WikiPedia:
Barnes Railway Bridge is only one of three bridges in London to combine pedestrian and rail use; the others being the Fulham Railway Bridge and Hungerford Bridge. .

Built in 1849 to a design by Joseph Locke – and looking very similar to the current Richmond Railway Bridge which he also designed – it was rebuilt by the London & South Western Railway in 1895. The original Locke span still stands unused on the upstream side.

Day 91: St George’s Wharf

St George's Wharf

St George’s Wharf isn’t really a pretty sight on the Riverside.

Now there are plans to build a 594ft Skyscraper (which will make the building the 6th tallest in London – The Gerkhin is 590ft). Work is due to start by the end of 2008 and I think that may be what the cranes are for.

(I left the plane streak in because it I think it works with the Bus streak and the boat streak – though I wish I had shot this at a faster speed with the 50mm instead)

Day 90: 1 West India Quay

1 West India Quay

From a visit to Canary wharf on day 90.

This was shot by placing the camera on the rail because I didn’t want to attract the attention of the security guards.

1 West India Quay is partly occupied by Marriot Hotel

Unfortunately I’ve forgotten the name of the bridge.
