Vauxhall Bridge is the ultimate city photographer’s challenge. A beautiful bridge, but surrounded by distractions which make capturing the whole structure difficult. But go there when the tide is out and opportunities open up. Here are eight photos of or created around Vauxhall Bridge a few days ago.
The first of these photos of Vauxhall Bridge captures the view from it. The building work which is underway in Battersea has completely changed Battersea Power Station setting.
Number two is from the Albert embankment a short walk from Vauxhall bridge. The boat on the right is a bar.
The third features the London Skyline from underneath Vauxhall Bridge. Note Big Ben, the London Eye and St Thamas’ Hospital behind Lambeth Bridge.
The fourth features one of the spectacular statues which make Vauhxall Bridge unique.
The fifth shows the London Eye and Lambeth Bridge from the river beneath the bridge. This shot only works when the tide is out!
The sixth is another view of Albert Embankment. There are many ornate lampposts like the one shown along this stretch of the River Thames.
The seventh and final image from this collection of photos shows the Lion statue on the wall alongside the bridge. There are several of these statues along the wall. They work well in colour as well as black and white as green algae is found along the bottom few feet of the wall.
I have photographed the River Thames for a decade and have supplied many prints of London’s bridges to homes and offices. For more information on anything you see here or to discuss photography of the London skyline please visit our website or call 01992 535344.
