London Bridge

The Location

Of all of our capital’s 33 bridges over the River Thames London Bridge is one of the ugliest. It’s a utilitarian bridge, a dull but functionable example of 1960’s architecture that carries an inordinate amount of traffic; both vehicular, cyclical and pedestrian. At rush hour it’s a veritable river of humanity as commuters trudge between London Bridge Station on the south bank and The City, one of the world’s busiest financial districts, on the north. Gothic Tower Bridge, purposeful Blackfriars, graceful Millennium and iconic Westminster are all bridges offering much more pleasing lines and picturesque settings to a photographer’s eye. Yet London Bridge is my most productive location ever. It’s also a crossing steeped in historical significance, because before a bridge was built here, London didn’t exist.
