Photo Walk at low-tide

The Greenwich Maritime Museum is showing the Ansel Adams Exhibition until the end of April 2013 – I visited back in November last year (see blog post here).

It’s slightly awkward getting to Greenwich from where I live but I seem to have visited the area rather a lot recently and I do get to ride (at the front) of the DLR Train.

I’ve been twice to travel on the Emirates Cable Car which is rather fun and then I went along to a photo walk with Thames21 – a charity that educates and help clean up the Thames.

Thames21 is one of the country’s leading waterway charities. We work with communities across Greater London to improve our rivers, canals, ponds and lakes for people and wildlife. (click to visit their webpage)

They run several groups and I attended one of their photo walks at low-tide – Woods Warf which is next to the Cutty Sark.

Here’s some of the images I took that day.

Out of 250+ entries I got shortlisted with 20 other photographers to show along side the Ansel Adams Exhibition at the Greenwich Maritime Museum.

Books – I love books!

The last time I was at the Museum I brought Adams book:

I have these three already –

and I couldn’t help myself by buying the Exhibition version at the Museum shop.

The shortlisted entries will be shown next to the Ansel Adams Exhibition until the end of this month and after this they will be at the Millers House Cafe in Bromley by Bow.

See all of the shortlisted entries on the Thames21 Flickr group if you can’t get there (with all the snow who knows but it’s worthy trying!).
