Pictures from London Part 2

Continuing from part 1, here are the remaining pictures from my recent trip to London. These were taken while going up the Thames on a boat from Canary Wharf towards the London Eye.

This boat ride is a very interesting one, because it is so full of contrast. On the one hand, there are these hyper-modern skyscrapers in Canary Wharf and the City. On the other hand, there are some industrial buildings (mostly converted to residential use) serving as reminders of what London used to be like.

Additionally, on this day the weather was alternating between sunshine and rain very quickly. I hope some of the pictures capture the weird lighting this resulted in: one half of the sky blue, and the other almost black. Some buildings in the dark, others in bright light.
