Trinity Boy Wharf - Sunday Street Photography

It was an early start and quite a journey to get to Canning Town for 9.30am. Once there I met Matt and we then walked toward Trinity Buoy Wharf. It was cold but not raining and slightly overcast which are some of my favourite conditions. I didn't want bright blue skies burning out my photos.

Trinity Buoy Wharf is a small peninsula on the Thames, its a cool place that I have visited a number of times. Each time I've been there I've seen something different, there have been a number of different art installations. It attracts creatives and different forms of art. From just walking around you will notice different sculptures. There are also music creators such as Daniel Avery in the area. There is also the only lighthouse in London (even though its not active you can go up inside) and a container city.

When shooting I had no agenda or planned way to photograph, it was just a shoot what you see kind of day. I was with my Leica C.

The Wharf was quieter than previous visits, but it was early on a Sunday morning. The cafe that I had been to before was closed and looked like it has shut down, shame it was cool and did a good breakfast.

Matt and I walked around and took some shots of what we saw, it felt quiet and empty, desolate even. From there we walked towards Canary Wharf again this area was quiet apart from groups of tourists. We continued to walk and shoot working our way to the river front where we got a few got shots. But time was getting on and I wanted to make sure I was back home to watch the football West Ham v Shrewsbury Town

In summary the day's photo walk was good and I always enjoy getting out, and even though I have been to Trinity Buoy Wharf a number of times I enjoyed it and would go back again. Its also a good form of exercise as I was actually walking for 5 hours.
