I was lucky enough to be given a first class rail ticket to London so went down on a one day photographic trip, I was there just 7 hours and had planned a grueling schedule of potential shots all over the Capital which I had no chance of completing but I had a good go and captured the main ones, didn't stop all day so was shattered but happy at the end of it.
I hadn't time to stop for food and drink so it was a good job that this was included in the tickets for both legs of the journey.
On arrival at Kings Cross I got the tube to Southwark on the South bank of the Thames and headed for the Tate Modern Art Gallery, I had a look at the £50m diamond scull created by Damian Hirst which was very impressive in a blacked out room with just one spotlight trained on it, but no photography allowed! I didn't look round the other galleries as I couldn't stay long but found a good shot of one of the colourful entrance doors which can be seen on 'Latest Images' page of this website.
Next stop was More London a collection of modern architecture on the South bank of the Thames, plenty of photo opportunities here around Tower Bridge including The Shard, City Hall and several amazing buildings with no name just an address.
Final destination was Canary Wharf so on the tube again to photograph One Canada Square, this used to be the highest building in the UK until The Shard was finished recently.
Time to get back to Kings Cross to catch the train back to Leeds, with three quarters of an hour to spare I nipped next door to St Pancras recently rebuilt train station which is well worth a look.

Some of the images from this trip I have processed from RAW files and are shown on the 'Latest Images' page of this website.
