Nikon D300 Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8 .9 ND Grad ............................................. North Greenwich is a 19th century name for the southern tip of the Isle of Dogs, located in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It was named for the now defunct North Greenwich railway station (1872), that served a former passenger ferry to Greenwich and stood near the later Island Gardens (1897) and Greenwich foot tunnel (1902) . It faces Greenwich over the River Thames and the area is now more usually known as South Millwall. It should not be confused with the northern part of the Greenwich peninsula in South London, formerly known as East Greenwich that lies south of the river and is the site of the The O2 (formerly the Millennium Dome). The opening in 1999 of the North Greenwich tube station on London Underground's Jubilee Line has now led to this area being known colloquially as North Greenwich. - Wikipedia .............................................

Hurricane Clipper moored at North Greenwich - 19th August 2011
Made by Alex-397
Whilst walking along the Thames Path on the Greenwich Peninsula, I came across this Thames Clippers boat on the sand of the River Thames. Thames Clippers apparently often put boats here as it is a soft surface. This boat had a rope on a propeller which needed to be cut free. Two members of staff were on board, who are engineers waiting for the high tide. From Thames Clippers website: Hurricane Clipper, - River Runner 200 Mark 2: Instantly recognisable by its Damien Hirst livery, the Hurricane Clipper was one of the first of the new catamarans in the fleet and runs both the scheduled commuter and Tate to Tate service. It was built in 2001 by the Cannes based Australian company NQEA - shipbuilders for navy craft, hovercraft, catamarans, general barges and RORO (roll on / roll off) cargo vessels. A number of famous politicians have travelled onboard including Tony Blair, Ken Livingston, John Prescott and ex-Australian Prime Minister John Howard. 220 seats Outside deck Speed 28 knots Ultra low wash design Length 38 metres Waterline length 35.4 metres Beam 9.6 metres Width 9.30 metres Twin-engine and propeller driven
The O2 Millenium Dome from the Thames, London
Made by alex_david
Perhaps because it was made up of a bunch of clowns, Tony Blair's British government decided to celebrate the year 2000 by building this enourmous circus tent on the outskirts of London, near Greenwich. Called the Millenium Dome, it was filled with exhibitions on human achievements, and ironically turned out to be a lukewarm failure. After the year 2000, it sat empty for half a decade on this bend of the Thames, near Greenwich, brooding like a giant skewered turtle under cloudy skies. It was finally redeveloped as a music and entertainment venue a few years ago, and rebranded by the O2 mobile company who poured money in it. As such, it seems finally to have become successful: in 2010, the O2 was termed the most popular music venue in the world in terms of total concerts attendances through the year. Still, on cloudy days, it still looks like an empty circus top pining for its clowns.

Yet another way in which technology has been abused. This is my view of a gig. I didn't pay to see a bunch of wankers recording it on their little cameras, how about commiting it to the old grey hard drive situated within that skull of yours, Sunshine? Is it just me, or does watching people concentrating on getting a great shot rather than feeling the music take the magic out of the moment? Ignore the filthy hypocricy of me holding up a camera to take this picture. No, actually, fair do's; I've done this too, you want to imortalise it, even though it will quite possibly get stuck on your hard drive and never watched, along with that really cute photo of a cat and that picture of a little child holding a toy gun that you thought was terribly poignant at the time.

The red double-decker buses in London have become a national symbol of Britain, and the majority of buses in London are double-deckers. A particularly iconic example was the Routemaster bus, which had been a staple of the public transport network in London for nearly half a century following its introduction in 1956. Because of cited difficulties accommodating disabled passengers, the last remaining examples in use finally retired in 2005, although Transport for London has established two heritage routes, which will continue using Routemasters on selected parts of routes 9 and 15. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-decker_bus
Slice of Reality
Made by Rodents rule
by Richard Wilson Standing on the foreshore of the Thames, the work comprises of a sliced vertical section of an ocean going sand dredger. The original ship was reduced in length by 85%, leaving a vertical portion housing the ships habitable sections: bridge, poop, accommodation and engine room. The slicing of the vessel opened the structure, leaving it exposed to the effects of weather and tide. www.richardwilsonsculptor.com/

A decorative marker at zero degrees longitude at the tip of the peninsula. A few metres from here, the bodies of hanged pirates used to be manacled inside cages and dangled into the river 'until three tides had passed' (and they were presumably looking sufficiently blue and gruesome), as a warning to others. Nice. It was a real bugger to get the flash and ambient light balanced before the boat, which really shifts, left the shot.

View On Black For someone who may be coming soon. The blue LED light at the top of this wreaks havoc on the D70S' sensor. Has anyone else had this problem? Any way around it in-camera? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontario_Tower
Hurricane Clipper - Beached Ferry
Made by langleyo
A river ferry lies stranded on a sandbank at the side of the Thames at low tide, undergoing repairs. These ferries are a great way to get around the city, and I recommend buying the Day Rover ticket which at this moment is around £12.60 (2011). you can cruise the Thames on a fast boat until 9.00 in the evening!
