I love them. The curved seat one and the runner are my favourites xDon
Thanks. All from Coal Drops Yard and the Kings X N1C development. Album here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rovingmike/albums/72157719473777805
Was a recce for a photo walk I'm leading in a couple of weeks.
They will certainly have some great opportunities for magical shots if the one you listed are anything to go by
Are the fountains in the ground those in Granary Square?
Great set of pictures Mike, I have been working on York Way all week and thought about exploring the Coal Drops but never got around to it, after a day on site in the heat I've just wanted to go home and cool down.
Yes they are.
I probably nearly bumped into you. Do get round there with a camera. I like the fact it is still a WIP, so the pictures are anchored in place and time.
Tx. I've got some shots of them at night taken from the Lighterman. The light show is nice.
This is just a quick snap I took on a test roll in the K1000 on my way to a site meeting two weeks ago.

We now have a week off site until second fix begins on the 28th so may well drop in on the 25th to check progress / drop off equipment then take a walk around the Coal Drops.
I'll be there with my group on Sunday 4th.
One from Croydon again:

Well I had a look around after the meeting this morning but could not get my head into photo mode, took a few but they are all er not very good and mostly not of the Coal Drops.

Feeling a big lack of love for the EOSM and missing having an eye level viewfinder, I think I can see a M50 in the near future.
Who changed the colour of the building in the background ?

That would be Mr. red filter in PS, trying to get some contrast on an overcast morning.
OK, I obviously didn’t run through as many filter options as I thought I did. It was a quick find as I packed up last night. I think the gasometer apartments there are an inspired bit of design.
The gasometers are a great way of keeping and re purposing a well known land mark and I like how they have kept the third one as an all be it deflated reminder of how they looked when in use.
For Northerners returning home they were on a par with the Archway bridge as a sign that you are leaving London, I just wish more gasometers could have been re purposed around the country but I imagine it is a very expensive option.
Yes must be very expensive to maintain them. I guess few had a solid cast iron frame with potential for long life.
