Indeed. I did quite a bit of work on another posting today, about scaffolding and video cameras and suchlike. But it’s not finished yet, and I don’t like to rush what I say about scaffolding.
So here are twenty photos I photoed beside the River, just over ten years ago:
The second one is no ordinary building site. That’s the Shard.
The scaffolding in front of the BT Tower is, I’m pretty sure, the beginnings of what is now Blackfriars Station.
Most of these scenes are of things that won’t happen again. But the Blackfriars ghost columns are still there, exactly as shown.
Photography is light.
