Odd sights in the capital

I've at last sorted through the pics from last weekend's trip through London. I'm reminded of the contrasts between city bustle and our separate existence on the canal.

Having a leisurely breakfast outside at Paddington is always fun, eating our cereal whilst the commuters scurry past.

Going down St Pancras lock we see the gas holder frame which in the near future is going to be filled not by gas but by a circular block of apartments. Someone told me they were even going to move it over to the left of this picture while they were at it.

Catching glimpses of the famous landmarks is always interesting whether it be the gherkin peeping over the skyline as we come up Ducketts Cut, or Canary wharf tower seen with its head in the clouds as we swing into Limehouse cut.

Cruising through London is good. If you haven't already tried it, then you should.

Wonderful images, Neil. I have walked the canals of London on many occasions and love it. I'm rather jealous you can do it under your own steam!
