Something very different this time. I like modern architecture, especially when it comes to symmetry and geometric lines. This is one of the exits of the Canary Wharf underground station. Most people seem to prefer photographing the other one, but I liked this one as it has more escalators. It is one of London's busiest stations, but not so on Easter Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately tripods are not allowed here, so this needs to be done with a steady hand and higher ISO. But I personally like the result and posting something different to my usual images.
Canary Wharf Station.
This is the platform at Canary Wharf. I took it when most of the people were not around. I got lucky.

This is my first ever shot of the London Underground.
I wanted to mark the 150th birthday of the London Underground...
Most modern Underground station in the new financial district of London Canary Wharf. Feels like being in a science fiction film.
Canary Wharf, one of the largest business places in the world, banking, million pound / dollar transactions, high fliers, and all I'm interested in is images of the architechture.... I think I know what side of the fence I'd rather be on.. anyway, a second attempt at this location, after my wide angle failed last time with a loose mounting plate screw (how???) I didn't spot until later in the day causing autofocus failure and light leaks, once the issue was found it was sorted with a simple matter of an opticians screwdriver (which now stays in my camera bag permanently), So, a different day and a functioning lens...needed to return to get what I'd wanted in the first place, Canary Wharf is a funny old place, not somewhere I'd usually rate as a destination but I do like it for shooting and I've a bit of a London thing going on at the moment, amidst the seemingly never ending concrete constructions of London there is still beauty to be found, challenging lighting issues and the incessant passengers make it all the more fun to try and grab something here, handheld, no tripod, no HDR. Can concrete be beautiful...? Interspersed with a bit of shiny metal.... Maybe.
