Calmer waters - # 292
We're still on the theme of "looking at things from a different angle" (it's a bit strained, I know; but this City Daily Photo thing is a tough task, especially when you are desperately trying to adapt a shrinking archive until you can get out to take a whole new series).
Here's a "less photographed view" of the excellent White Cross Inn seen from the Twickenham side looking through the arch of Richmond Bridge. Most people congregate around the White Cross and the other establishments along the Richmond bank.
It's a calm and soothing riverside scene. Compare it with my shot taken last March showing the river ripping through the arches of the bridge.
Nice calm and peaceful - not like Yahoo mailservers which have started bouncing all my emails to you back againReplyDelete
This photo is framed in such a lovely way.ReplyDelete
excellent shot. Love the calm water and the arch frame.ReplyDelete
So what else have you got in Richmond besides pretty things like the river?ReplyDelete
You got any traffic lights or petrol stations or awful shops or is everything from a picture book?
Ooo - that sounded a bit aggressive - it wasn't meant to be - I just like to see ugly stuff too - it gives you the "whole picture".
It is an interesting arch and I always wonder what held it up while they were making it. Here, we use lots of plywood frames but your bridge was built before plywood. Do you know what they used in those days?ReplyDelete
If this nice view is from the different angle, would the ones with the normal angle be even better? I doubt!ReplyDelete
I would be very pleased if this was one of my 'archive' shots.ReplyDelete
Wow - the reflections, the perfect depth of field, the colours, the angle and the textures - all add up to a perfect shot - i am so jealous!!!ReplyDelete
This is an angle I like very much, looking through an arch. And the overall impression is idyllic.ReplyDelete
