As anyone who has visited this blog regularly will know, I do rather like old buildings, preferably showing some signs of dilapidation and decay, the better to give a sense of the lives they have led…
I have been doing some sorting recently, and attempting to digitalise gazillions of slides and negatives (this is a weighty project ad one that I suspect will never be completed).
Imagine my delight the other day when I came across some images I had taken during a wander around Wapping in the late 1990s which I thought had been lost! Very atmospheric. Alas, not taken with my wonderful Nikon FM2 and Nikon glass on 35mm slides, only a little Konica compact film camera loaded with colour negative film, but it did turn out some reasonable results.
So today I present Wapping High Street……1998.
More to follow in the shape of whopping Warehouses of Wapping! And I hope to get back to that area soon, to see what remains….
