It’s always interesting to get a new viewpoint of a city, for example London. A plane is perfect for that, except that planes bound for Heathrow are generally flying too high for anyone to do more than spot the general layout and the main landmarks. Photos are unlikely to be worth bothering with, even if your have a window seat. However, London City Airport offers more opportunity. Flying in last week, I realised it might be worth getting the iPhone out to see what I could do with it through the mist and cloud. The answer was, take rather poor pictures. Then I thought about turning them black and white. Suddenly they took on a new look, both old-fashioned and rather intriguing. I thought so anyway, so here they are.
TOWER BRIDGE with CITY HALL
THE THAMES & DOCKLANDS
THE HSBC BUILDING (CITY MELTDOWN…)

I’ve never come into the City airport. The views are fascinating and certainly it was worthwhile taking the photographs to share.
Nor me, till last Thurs. Wonderfully quick & easy. And good value. Wish it had been sunny for the photos… RH
I’ve never flown in or out of here either. I like the clouds in these shots actually RH – gives a very atmospheric effect!
Mrs Harbour uses LCA for biz flights – I’d assumed prices matched biz use. Not so! Limited destinations, but plenty of variety. Ad ends. You say atmospheric – I say apocalyptic. It’s an optimist / pessimist thing I expect… RH [PS thanks for your ‘like’ catch up of posts. But where are yours? Semi-hibernating?]
😀 at apocalyptic! I’ve got a backlog of stuff to go up on the blog but don’t seem to have the time to do it. Must try harder! 😀
