Wandering in Wapping…..whopping red warehouse

Another image from my past wander in Wapping. Last time a gloomy green warehouse, all Dickensian darkness and dismal facade. This one has red metal in place of the green, but this doesn’t make it brighter, if anything sends it leaning towards the nether world….

Wapping - whopping in red

Wapping – whopping in red

    This is wonderful. I really like the contrast, and the perspective of looking up.

  2. Is it still there Sue – converted to loft apartments?

    • Well, I rather doubt it’s still there..this is why I want to return! I’ll probably be most disappointed as all the old buildings are probably loft apartments now….

  3. Well I’d love to live in a loft apartment (apart from the downside that they don’t come with a garden) – baggsie one with the red doors (and a balcony please…)

    Great image 🙂

    • Hoho,..the trouble is, these loft apartments are soooo expensive! And I bet the colours have all changed when the warehouses were knocked down and the new builds put up…. there, I’ve burst the bubble. Glad you like the image, now of a piece of history.

      • sigh… bubble truly burst. I was imaging something like in that advert years ago (can’t remember what for, possibly coffee) where the space was enormous and they sat on the balcony reading the Sunday newspaper and eating croissants. Or maybe I have imagined it all!!

        Be interesting to see what is there now if you get the chance to go back.

      • Oh, I probably shall return, my curiosity will get the better of me! The space in these places could be enormous, but so would your bank balance need to be…

  4. You’ll have to go back soon, Sue. I want to know how it looks now.

    I like the contrast, too. Great capture!

  6. Great perspective and textures Sue. And perfect title 🙂
