Tomatoes Mosaic: Canary Wharf

Tomatoes Mosaic: Canary Wharf
Made by curry15
I went to see these beautiful mosaics as I'd seen an article about them. They're on the floor of a shopping mall and there are thirteen in total. I felt that they weren't appreciated there. They're not easy to photograph because of the glare from the overhead lights. These marble and smalti pavement mosaics are by Emma Biggs and were unveiled in March 2004. They are situated in Wharf Walk, a thoroughfare running the length of the Jubilee Place shopping complex in east London's Canary Wharf development. They take their theme from the history of the Docklands area, depicting the range of goods and commodities which used to pass through the docks. Each mosaic is surrounded by lettering with information about the subject shown. The original Canary Wharf took its name from the tomatoes, fruit and potatoes imported here from the Canary Islands. www.thejoyofshards.co.uk/london/canary/

Docklands

Docklands
Made by J. van de Pas
London, with the Museum of Docklands on the right. The Museum of London Docklands (formerly known as Museum in Docklands) is a museum on the Isle of Dogs, east London that tells the history of London's River Thames and Docklands. The museum is part of the Museum of London Group which is jointly funded by the City of London Corporation and the Greater London Authority. The museum opened in 2003 in a group of grade I listed early 19th century Georgian low sugar warehouses built in 1802 on the side of West India Docks on the Isle of Dogs, a short walk from the Canary Wharf development. The nucleus of the collection is the museum and archives of the Port of London Authority. These became part of the port and river collections of the Museum of London in 1976, but largely remained in storage until the new museum was opened. Source: Wikipedia

Canary Wharf, London - 31st October 2009 20:49 A view from West India Quay towards Canada Square and the looming towers of the Docklands. This was really just a bit of an experimental shot and I will probably delete it; I certainly want to try and get a better shot from a similar point of view in the not too distant future. It was taken too late and the sky is too black therefore, I need to get a sturdier tripod, and I need to use the noise reduction features I found when I returned home! :) Otherwise I quite like the resulting image, and it has served it's purpose as an experiment - I am certainly more confident with night shots. 30 second exposure, which has been corrected for perspective and sky lightened slightly in PS4.

Docklands

Docklands
Made by J. van de Pas
Docklands is the semi-official name for an area in northeast and southeast London, England. It forms part of the boroughs of Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Newham and Greenwich. The docks were formerly part of the Port of London, at one time the world's largest port. They have now been redeveloped principally for commercial and residential use. The name London Docklands was used for the first time in a government report on redevelopment plans in 1971 but has since become virtually universally adopted. It also created conflict between the new and old communities of the London Docklands. Source: Wikipedia

Canary Wharf

Canary Wharf

I was visiting KPMG last week which gave me the opportunity to return to canary warf. From 2000-2003 I was working in the first building on the right, at Barclays Capital. I was on the trading floor, on which there are 400 desks. No exactly ideal. Canary wharf has grown quite a bit since I stopped working there. There are many new offices and shops. Only the transport does not seems to have improved much.

A day to remember... 15th July 2009... meets Mister Tof! It was a real honour to meet THE shadow master in person! Such a great day of course! It was just a shame we couldn't stretch those minutes in more hours, and that we couldn't make those clouds go away ;o) It will be a day to remember my friend and I hope we meet again soon!

Canary Wharf and its neighbours reflected on the Marriott Tower as they bask in this colllld winter sunrise. The bridge floats, the cranes, er, crane and the lights glow on, and on, and on...

This the Columbian navy's tall ship Gloria, its official flagship. It docked in London's West India Quay this morning, and the public can go on board. Simply beautiful. But be quick if you want to see it - it leaves again on Friday! www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-14634589

No shortage of seats at 5 in the morning, but the service is terrible. West India Dock winebars awaiting the onslaught of another hard days drinking by stressed analysts and execs and PAs and IT operators and poseurs and secret alcoholics and tourists and yuppies and dinkies and young guns and dinosaurs and flirts and charmers and bananas in pyjamas

I found a nice old Konica C35 EF 35mm camera in a local charity shop - £1.99 I loaded a very expired film to test it - looks good to me. My pal and I were asked to stop taking photos by Canary Wharf security - tourists everywhere snapping away - we wandered round the corner and carried on. We don't exactly look like pros.

Better on black: Haven't had chance to take many shots recently, so here's a set from a couple of nights I spent last year in and around Docklands, London. This is the marriot hotel and appartments at West India Quay with the original dock crane to the left.

Yesterday we went to the Museum if London at Docklands. It's a cool place, full of interesting stuff. That's especially true if you are as obsessed with urban regeneration as myself. Anyway, this was taken from the entrance on West India Quay as we left.

Taken at Canary Wharf. The old crane (used to unload the numerous ships that would travel from around the world) in front of the newer financial centre. The numerous docks in this area have just been turned into large glorified ponds!
