Canary Wharf – London

Standard

Canary Wharf is a quite new area in London with tall buildings, banks, businesses and lots of restaurants and coffee shops. I love going there as everything looks new and clean. The area is also called the Docklands as they used to be the busiest docks in London, delivering rawsugar and other foods from far away. There is a lovely museum telling you everything about it. Some of the big houses there were ware houses and are now restored and made into beautiful spacious and expensive flats.

Before Christmas I was invited to a Restaurant in Canary Wharf. As I was too early I walked around in the sunshine and enjoyed the beauty of this area. It is very peaceful, and in summer bustling with people sitting outside eating and enjoying the sunshine near the water.

I took pictures on my phone and as a trial I am putting them into a gallery. (Learning more here) Excuse the quality, I am not a photographer and it cannot be compared with Alastair or Mani. If you like to see really great pictures have a look on the two links of my friends.  I noticed all the pictures taken in the shade went blue, never mind I still share them with you and take any advice on board.

So here we are:

Whenever you visit London this is a wonderful place to hang out and enjoy!

  1. Your photos came out well. I have a hard time getting a good photo from my phone. I get some strange results. I have been reading a lot about the old Docklands lately so I am pleased to see how it is today and to know that you enjoy the area.

  2. They are gorgeous photos, Ute! Using white balance would help with the bluish tones, but they’re still gorgeous. I don’t know that I’ll ever make it to London, but I appreciate when you share photos of places. It’s the next best thing to being there. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Rene, there are so many lovley places in London, I can show you round when ever you come. I can see if I can improve and take more of my chosen hometown. I always say seeing pictures is almost as I have been there, like travelling on paper. 🙂
