Photographer's Note

Ok, so there are plenty of pictures of London showing the glossy facade - St Pauls Cathedral, the Millenium Wheel, Tower of London; but behind the scenes there are the roads, buildings and other amenities which characterise where the real londoners work. No amount of great sunsets can hide the fact that once outside of the centre of any major city the landscape becomes much less pretty and interesting. Poplar is an area just to the north of Canary Wharf (the new financial district in the east of London). Over time it has been populated by many immigrant communities and still remains so to this day. The fact that the foreground is nearly black and white is no trick of photoshop - it really is like that, a grim landscape with little to brighten things up.
