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….
See more takes on ‘T’ here.
Fascinating, very well captured… 🙂
Thanks Drake! In bright light, an iPad isn’t the most user-friendly camera!!
Perhaps like shooting blindly or darkness..?
I don’t have an iPad myself, but I can imagine that the display “catch” light… 🙂
I was hoping for Tuscany 😦
Oh dear, I thought someone might say that! 😦
Don’t be sorry…I did think I should perhaps post some Tuscan sunshine!!
I love that photo.
Oh good, thanks Mrs C 🙂
Unexpected perhaps, but lovely! All the more for having been shot with an IPad!
Thanks, Madhu…an iPod is a beast of burden as a camera, both unwieldy and difficult to use in any light!
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.
Thanks, glad you liked
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.
Thanks, Otto. The juxtaposition of old and new appealed to me, and I was annoyed that I didn’t have a camera…then I remembered the iPad!
Cell phones are almost always there, no?!
lovely pictures Sue. i used to work in windsor and our office building was by the thames. 🙂
Thanks! Glad you like them 🙂
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!
I rather think he would!
