Walk 2: Westminster to Chelsea

Sunday the 1st of April: Gary and I decided to do the second leg of our walk along the South Bank of the upper Thames. So far we have already walked from Tower Bridge to Westminster, today we continue going west. We will walk as far as we can within the day then that becomes a start point for the next walk. Hopefully by the end of the summer we will have gone as far as we can within the reach of the London underground system, once we get to the end of the network we will have to revue our ability to go further within the day.
The day was very bright, not a cloud in the sky but at least it was dry. It was not good light for our photography, lots of contrast making our pictures very lifeless.

The MI6 building is truly a fantastic piece of architecture almost a one off, I will return at a better time of day to get the evening light. I took loads of shots just to find the best angles.
