24 Hours of London – 7th-9th Hours – Moving to the Eye
[A link to previous parts of my writeup can be found here]
As I’d mentioned in the previous part the skies were brewing up nicely presenting for some lovely broody images as we walked along Southbank and Waterloo Bridge – grabbing a couple of views across the Thames. The plan at this point was to head down towards London Bridge , which apparently had the drawbridges up – but it was a stretch too far , and with the wet weather we had to give it a pass.
Another consideration was a pass I’d booked for the London Eye with some other participants – which I’d needed to be there at 9pm for , after first eating (underwhelming pub dinner for the money sadly) and then heading back to base at Wandsworth to get rid of my 80-200mm f/2.8 ,(sticking with the lighter and more handholdable 85 f/1.4 D instead) . I also made sure to grab my tripod for the night-time section. The timing was extremely tight – ended up having to literally run back to the room I was renting and grab my gear , and run back to Wandsworth Station in 10 minutes! – Just about made it to the London Eye with 5 minutes to spare!
