    They will certainly have some great opportunities for magical shots if the one you listed are anything to go by

    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.

    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.

    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.
