Frizztext’s A to Z Challenge: T is for Thames

It’s time again for Frizztext’s A to Z Challenge, this week it’s T. From my travels, T could be for Tal-y-Llyn, Tanygrisiau, Tarascon, Le Touquet, Le Thoronet, Traunkirchen, les Trois Épis, Turckheim, Tivoli, Tuscany, Trinidad de Cuba, Trier, Thüringer Wald….

But d’you know, I’m going for closer travel in the shape of the Thames at Canary Wharf. All high rise modern architecture. Images taken from a friend’s balcony on the other side of the river with my iPad, one day last year….

View across the river, with decaying old crane (kept as a souvenir, I’m told, from when this are was rebuilt) in foreground:

Had a great view onto the river, and the bustling traffic….

  1. Fascinating, very well captured… 🙂

  2. I was hoping for Tuscany 😦

  3. Unexpected perhaps, but lovely! All the more for having been shot with an IPad!

  4. Having had my first trip to London a couple of months ago I am delighted to see the Thames. I like the crane in the foreground.

  5. Very nice, Sue. There is something special about the Thames, isn’t there!? Love the juxtaposition between the old cranes and the modern skyscrapers on the other bank.

  6. lovely pictures Sue. i used to work in windsor and our office building was by the thames. 🙂

  7. hey Sue, again I liked your intro: “T could be for Tal-y-Llyn, Tanygrisiau, Tarascon, Le Touquet, Le Thoronet, Traunkirchen, les Trois Épis, Turckheim, Tivoli, Tuscany, Trinidad de Cuba, Trier, Thüringer Wald…” – (for me T is Tacitus but you can’t travel to him anymore): Tacitus would have been amused by the warship on the river Thames!

Over to you...
