Rear Window, Greenwich Style (2)


Rod insists that he hasn’t retouched this pic – that this is just how the light fell on that particular evening – and I believe him. Sometimes the light in Greenwich is just weird – and really rather wonderful. I don’t know about you but I’ve found that some of the strange weather we had over the past few months brought out some very odd lights, cloud-formations, shadows etc (I feel a new occasional Freaky Greenwich Weather series coming on…)


But back to Rod, sitting in his flat in his wheelchair, complete with binoculars, tartan rug and James Stewart drawl. Central London stretches before him – Gherkin, Tower 42 and that posh apartment block in Deptford that was on the telly. Has he actually seen any murders? He’s not saying…

The Creek winds its way through the foreground, though how much longer the view will be exactly like that I don’t know. In the meanwhile, he’ll get some good views of the building work when they start on that peninsula project (I can never remember which names they give which schemes.) BTW did anyone ever find out whether the proposed Section 106 bridge got included in the final plans?

Keep your photos coming in, folks. No matter if they’re not as dramatic as Rod’s – I just want to see what you can see…
