< Back to Trafalgar Square : See all posts : Forward to Leicester Square>
A new day found me with a long walk from Trafalgar Square all the way to Fenchurch Street Station. It was about two and a half miles and took me the best part of an hour. By the time I arrived I needed a cup of tea, so took a rest at Caffe Nero. After refreshments I had a walk around the station and the a look around the general location. In all the years I had lived and worked in London I had never been to Fenchurch Street station, so it gave me another new view of the city. My images were easy to find for a change. I liked the view of the Gherkin building from under the pavement outside the station. I think the old wooden cover over the station pavement really adds to the curves in the image. The second image was of the crane with yet more development in the city. I think the clear dull sky helps with this one. The last image was on the little square outside the station. There was a stall selling great looking bread with a cold lady waiting for her next customer. I had to move a little to get the taxi where I wanted it in the background, but I think it works well. I only spent about an hour at the station and I was soon on my way back to Leicester Square. Another good walk, back to the west.
