Canary Wharf, London

Canary Wharf Today was my day off work, and where was i ?, back on a train to Stratford !

Myself and a mate and fellow photographer Barry Stewart headed up to Canary Wharf area with our camera. We got the Docklands Light Railway from Stratford to Poplar , on arrival it instantly started to rain so we headed off on foot the short distance to Canary Wharf . The weather really ruined the day but we managed to get a couple of images of Canary Wharf Underground Station.

I also got this image of The Cat and Canary, a traditional English Pub

The Cat and the Canary


 Today was the first day of the London Tube strike so the underground station was surprisingly deserted. The weather just deteriorated to the point we just decided to head home. Really wish the weather would change for the better getting a little tired of all the wind and rain we having lately, need some real summer weather. 

Tartar Frigate Broadstairs

Tartar Frigate Broadstairs  

The historic Tartar Frigate is one of the only 18th century flint restaurants in Kent.


I was out with my camera walking along the seafront at Broadstairs, while walking back from the small harbor area i saw this pub in the distance and just thought it looked a nice looking building especially as it is all illuminated in the evening.

Looking at the website if  seafood is not your thing then there are alternatives and a brief look at the menu looks very nice, may have to book a visit myself. There is also a list of live music which is played on various nights so if you have never been might be worth a visit or if you have been why not let us know what its like !

The image of the pub was taken on a tripod with the following settings
